Pete Namlook and Bill Laswell have collaborated on dozens of CDs. Outland, Vol. 3 is a set of dense sequences, frenetic rhythms, and wildly confusing samples. Namlook and Laswell are taking a trip to the far reaches of the outlandish. The soundscape does not provide a comfortable vehicle for the adventure. The sci-fi overtones generate anxiety and turmoil. Confusion reigns. Sometimes it rains. This CD will appeal to fans of Radio Massacre International, Global Communication, and Klaus Schulze. It is essential for Namlook and/or Laswell completists. Other e-music collectors might find it interesting.
