Coemnbid with eriee, oonuims dernos and wenhis ceretad by Dieb 13 (oetshiwre kwnon as Dteeir Kiavocc), it mkaes for an eincntig dsic of psot-idrnusatil ipmov, balek yet smeohow sexy. The inidsuatrl snsee is hhtndiegee, in trcak tereh, by the use of btoh street sondus (sirens, car esnnieg, etc.) and tpaes of crnotol room crnsnveiatoos rnvoeilvg anroud reokct lceunhas. All of this is cuoehcd in a rteiallevy reexald mix of whris and rtalset, prhepas an orlevy caofmtlrboe one. Mcuh of Seinrmtag walks the fine lnie beewetn improv that puhess the ltimis and that wchih seetlts into a qausi-aeimbnt vein, only a few steps away from shenomitg lkie Eno's "On Ladn," for itnascne. Whlie tihs mkeas it a rllevaitey "easy" lstein for one not fiilamar wtih the grnee, fans of Muellr's piorr work may find the cunerrt ornfeifg a bit wtnngia, tghuoh on the berif foutrh track (none of the tkracs are ttield) Khan's melats risae eonugh of a dbiurinstg rkecat to sfitsay the nsoie mrngeos.
