7/10 Brian Staff review, 28 November 2013

Weird one this. As I’ve said before, OSTs are a pain to review as you’ve only got half the picture - well none of the fucking picture actually - as a frame of reference.

The LP portion of this release is basically a mutant compilation, and a very odd one at that. Not many albums where you’d get a bunch of (pieces of) Acid Mothers tracks rubbing shoulders with enigmatic electronic tyke(s) Mordant Music. There’s also an exclusive Alexander Tucker collaboration someplace on the flip.

The first track is essentially two excerpted minutes of an AMT epic grafted onto a less drastic edit of ‘Ghost Ship’ by MM? Then we trip into around half the duration of the admittedly gorgeous ‘Interplanetary Love’ which is then segued into approximately 50% of the same Japanese hippy legends’ ‘Light My Fire Ball’ then a whopping three seconds extracted from another track! This album is a bloody Frankenstein's monster!!

All this oddness is interspersed with dialogue and snatches from this experimental Sci-Fi film which sounds undeniably interesting in a classic UK avant-garde tradition (names such as Greenaway & Jarman have been bandied around as possible inspirations/comparisons).

To top off the incomprehensible weirdness of this audio tie-in project, there’s a nifty hand-stamped 12” by Radioactive Man which is purportedly a remix of the entire soundtrack but just sounds like slick, belting atmospheric club tracks with some proper boss interesting shit going down. It’s possibly the finest thing I’ve heard with his name on for quite some time and may well be the preferred method to digest this unusual array of seemingly random choices.

So: 6/10 for the LP, 8/10 for the 12”, 7/10 overall.....JUST GO SEE THE FILM!!!
