For the first time in vinyl format! Limited Edition of 500 numbered copies. Remastered for vinyl.
(This album was only released as a Compact disc).
Wire Magazine (UK): "Ulan Bator’s music follows an eccentric orbit, while their power is usually kept simmering in reserve. The players investigate the borders of song structure.They build up enormous tension (...) they played a marathon three hour set with Faust early last year. Hard to imagine, given Ulan Bator's inherent sense of control: halting on the brink before complete freakout sets in is what makes the group so special"
Alternative Press (USA): "To say that this is the best rock music France has ever produced is to damn it with faint praise. This trio may be the only band from that oversauced nation to be worth a damn in a long time maybe since Metal Urbain or Magma (...) Call it musique concrete paved with irreverence.”
Les Inrockuptibles (Fr): "Préfigurant les secousses telluriques de Godspeed et consorts, ce groupe à la fois primitif et savant a libéré le rock hexagonal de ses chaînes. Ulan Bator réussit là où la plupart des groupes américains ont échoué".
