The Aphex and Russell Haswell approved Noise Artists Whitehouse are back with a very strong album in every way. If you aren't aware of them yet, they have been recording and performing on the edge of music in every way. The Pan African colours adorn the cover with a black glossy booklet featuring the lyrics in full.These are strong lyrics but equally the production is very very strong overall this is their most varied album yet and artistically possibly their best. The lyrics are absolutely stomach churning in parts but usefully printed on the booklet for amateur Detectives to pour over for months to spot the references that make up the lyrics. Musically this is radical and creative, beatless but sophisticated but with layers of dense sculptured noise on some tracks, on others just well made single sounds, on others atmospheric fogs. Sonically it's strangley aggressive in a spectral kind of way,but beguiling and dense enough to emmerse yourself in just where pain and pleasure meet.
