Very nice to see this back in print–it’s a wonderful example of the softer, gentler, white noise side of TG–it still has a few vaguely ominous moments, but in general works just as well as a noise generator for inducing sleep. It’s a bedtime favorite at our house, ranking alongside Sigur Ros, Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, etc.

This was recorded live in the studio in one take in March of 1979, but you would never know that if not told–it’s layered and dynamic yet hypnotic.

It’s one long track, but that is as should be. You should listen to the whole thing at once, though you certainly do not need to remain conscious for all of it.

It’s a decent first TG experience for the uninitiated. If you like this, try Heathen Earth next.
