The THC-abusing hordes who comprise Sleep's fanbase will be relieved to note that this single-sided 12" is very much on the same interstellar wavelength as their previous work in the '90s, in which they gave birth to a metaphysically magnificent stoner sound that followed on from Black Sabbath's lead to spawn a legion of imitators, and absolutely none the worse for that. The colossal riffage of Matt Pike, the devotional chant of Al Cisneros. the rock-solid percussion of Neurosis man and relative new guy Jason Roeder - all add up to a sound not unlike a radio transmission from a planet hurtling to meets its doom in the gravity of an enormous flaming star. Turn on, tune in, burn out.
