Experimental guitarist and producer Scott Ayers, a.k.a. Walking Time Bombs, teams up with Neurosis on this album. No neurotic walls of noise here, this year-long collaboration (based on mailed tapes) is a coherent vision of inner space travel. Sparse, treated guitar, slow percussion rhythms, and organic and environmental samples make up the foundation of this recording. Not all is safe and warm, though: witness the hectic and oppressive guitar overlord theme "March to the Sun." Largely, this work is a fully textured and richly painted canvas of basic themes -- ideal for brooding.
