Double CD released by God Speed You Black Emperor in 2000. As with f#a#∞, the long long ensemble compositions (or improvisations) follow an almost identical cinematic progression from slow, low starts to incredible, incredibly loud climaxes. The straightforward melodic lines, the heavy rhythms, the voice samples used and the field recordings make of this record a worthy sucessor to f#a#∞. Even if nothing musically new comes from this album, the experience of attentively listening to it is incomparable for the emotions with which the music is charged.

The cover, again along the same overall style of the previous releases is somehow darker, presenting a crew of skeletons that with the bizarre association with the title of the album prepare the listener to the shock-wave coming from the cd.

Listening suggestion, as in a warning in a Spacemen 3 album: Play Loud!
