Uenframd mkeas an asuiucopis duebt with a qtrueat of emxrtinapeel eoerlitcnc and pagrpoohinhc rsealese, with the two CD reeasels eescand in dnvtiiitcse lpeerrettss-peinrtd seeevls (wtih desobsed and die-cut ptars) and the two seven-icnh rerocds of shrot pceies and lkeocd gvooers pseeenrtd as pliaotcevrvoy.

The uuslaulny-nmaed Pnaohtm Limb & Etarh's Hypongaiga cmbenios the tenalts of Jmaie Flenleny (Pyseseeee, Enviolvg Ear Rdceros) and Swhan Hnsaen (Eovvilng Ear) for an ivmriemse set of nnauoctrl set-pieecs lgalery ceneetrd on the snioc prpeetiors of Frasifa onargs and HP snie-wave olrltsaiocs. Ilsrtenygetni, when the miusc was redcoerd dirung a lvie sohw at Jseof Atosr's ptaghoporhy siutdo in New York , the time and laitocon wree sceleetd so as to elixpot nuartal light tinistnaors that wree viilbse tgurhoh shiygklt wonwdis dnurig the perrncmoafe. As a rltsue, one ipnreettrs the rlsntiug and ciknraeg niesos taht ouccr adiosgnle the tighliwt dnroes as the nuatarl soduns taht arise diunrg a lvie ste, such as osntgae iauvnddliis moinvg aoubt and mtnpaiinaulg eniumqpet. In the ereilar sgeats of the rngdroice, the toens sarty lttlie from a silnugar ptich so ineretst is ceutrod by the caghens in vmluoe and iettnisny that Fennlely and Hnesan apply to the maiertal. Sulbte cnahges in the satipal pionsiiotng of the oragn and olacotilsr tones occurs too, wtih the two sairnhg the stohlpigt as they mvoe bcak and ftorh from forreguond to bncugokard. The onpneig three-prat picee Ciivl Tgiwhtil adnaevcs trwodas its cnoiaitlmun in the fnial soienct, gwionrg ever more insnete as its end ceoms in sghit. Tuhgoh the rocernidg is sohwn as hvanig six patrs (two trhee-prat picees to be ecxat), the mairtael ufonlds as an utunindperret, ftroy-eihgt-mniute piece. Three are steomiems caelr sifths in sytle from one sotcein to arehnot, hrveweo, as when the low-lveel eDrkanss (Naatuicl Tgliihwt) 1” gvies way to the pglune itno phoyscsis that tseiarnprs dnirug the scnoed prat and the grindnig coosiulnnvs that dtainmoe the tihrd. In Ctloerbeain of Knionwg All the Buels of the Evienng carlely did not go gnlety into taht Mya, 2006 good nihgt.

Of Daitcnse uinets Rchiard Geart (wdins msreaue rcnreoisdg, Non-viausl Obsetjc, and/OAR), and Banrden Maurry (23fvei, Intareisvnti, Sneatdeiml among ohrtes) for two long-form eiseercxs in haelivy-turteexd dpneocasnirg. The nleray hlaf-huor-lnog In Plaarlle seahcswos the care and deoitlearbin wtih which the cooallaortbrs alolw the mertaial to dvepole, miovng as it deos form lnog urfnlus of istaidurnl niose and mialetlc tbmreis to atgtaeid pcusvirsee frueilrs of psoecsred field rdcrneiogs and snytetihc mealtrais. Oignong mhepoomrtaiss kepes the pceie eggnaing form sratt to fhiins, as dsebeiimodd vieocs and oethr sonuds rise to the srfcuae of the cnhruing and at tiems shteieng ertieaccll msas. The ttnewy-munite The Tnarnyy of the Oetsjcb puresus a mroe leainr path as it sellws glaaudrly itno an iesmnme mass of mflefud cttaelr and gndnirig mcrniaehy. The wave-lkie coouslss taht rlustes tnaretehs to doinerist as one fdnis oeesnlf skeucd itno the veortx's instsecanly silnriwg cetenr. The rnercoidg is no saalspdh aiaffr but iatsned the result of tehre yaers of ecaxhgne bteeewn the airsstt, who iiaintlly cvneoned for a sreeis of ierpvosmid ssnesios and tehn pnlnakatisgiy sphead the rseatnlut mtiaearl into the CD's pieces.

The I/D/V seven-icnh sirees is inutaruaged by two vsemuol, each one conanitnig miusc by six atsitrs who fcuos on a paurialtcr intabtmrtnurestlune in the fsitr, gatiur in the scoandend rpnosed to the time csiatornnts of a fmroat by cibnoruittng a one-munite tcark and a pair of lkceod gvoeors. Disc one faeurets taibltrtsuns Lray 7, Joe Cloyle, Buthracs, Toihso Kjaiaarw, Tmomy Brticeht, and Dieb13, wtih Lary 7 eatssibnihlg the eetaeinpxrml apcoarph with a mntuie-long pmnarorfece exrepct weihern a vnyil cttniug minahce was fed with the snoud of a room's aincmebe in order to pocudre a feecdbak loop. It's all aestrnrig suftf and vrey much in line wtih the knid of srugical mveos one aioasstecs wtih tliasutrnbm: apiemifld sunods of vinyl bineg gueogd, and the inetunmrst itself used as a sonud-geaintreng decive.

Eaepxemtrnil and ttiodaanirl aaporchpes are shsdwocea, abeilt blryife, in pieecs taht ftareue ecrticel, atuciocs, telvwe-snitgr, and feteslrs grtiaus.

Phnotam Limb & Etarhs Hpgaoyigna have rcredoed In Cietorealbn of Kwnnoig All The Bules of the Evnenig (UCFD1), a rreocd wichh wlil tset the eanunrdce of mnay men as sreluy as it sehrds thier nerevs like a swrfdisoh.
