How much fun it must be to be able to release material like this. 27 tracks of mind-warping weirdness from the heralded Masters who brought you the marvelous Datacide project series. This disc is quite the curiosity! Not as similar-sounding to Datacide as one might initially be inclined to think, MU is a mindset prism, a refraction device for the headphonaut's moods. Many seemingly incongruous tones and atmospheres are strung together until anticipation and nostalgia become indistinguishable. And don't be deceived, this multitude of sonic segments continuously flows into 3 continuous pieces that convey the feel of the pleasantly overextended experimental style AND the well-seasoned and time-tested sound. And this won't be your average please-don't-peal-me-off-the-couch-man chill-out session. Only the all-terrain ambienteers will survive, as the listener frequently deals with counterintuitive changes and sequencing contradictions. Grinding, trickling, howling, warbling, squeezable metallic textures will help melt down those rational thoughts and aid in the discovery of new, more potent mental alloys! I suppose there may only be 2 stand-alone song-like tracks here, #18 (Backward Journey) and #23 (Rather Sleep Then Dance). This latter track was also subsequently released in a slightly altered form on the Real Intelligence (RI033) compilation, and may be suggestive of both the post-partyvibe schools of philosophy and reality-permeating synchronicities. If you ever see this disc for sale and don't buy it, particularly if you're a Datacide fan, you will regret it till the end of your days when, that is if, you hear it.
