Here we can really hear Helios developing his solo style for what's to come. Much more raw and abrasive than the previous record, Superior Catholic Finger is a classic. How about the long tripped out intro to Monster Lust? Hear the train sounds in the beginning of it as Helios was a big fan of trains. Tons of weird samples of nutty preacher men and an astronaut blast-off countdown to name a few, plenty of elements that give that essence of Chrome spacey-ness that we all crave.
