8/10 Brett Staff review, 19 August 2010

This bad boy's subtitled 'A Rework of Gustav Mahler's Symhonic Poem' and that pretty much tells the story: Mahler's 'Titan' (aka 'Symphony No. 1') plays while Petit and chum Kumo sprinkle the classical 99 with their electronic hundreds and thousands. It's certainly a hugely respectful treatment with the original piece always audible and generally quite prominent despite the drones and effects pasted over the top, collage style. The press release mentions 2001 and Forbidden Planet and it's certainly very sci-fi soundtrack-y sounding, particularly when it kicks in with some proper B-movie theremin twiddles. I guess superficially the overall schtick might seem somewhat similar to those Indignant Senility records from a little while back that were based around Wagner's stuff but this is done with a far lighter touch and I'm probably enjoying it more for the fact.
