Another "audio mind control unit" that fuses their classic surf sound without leaving behind what made "1000x" and "Made From Technetium" good. The songs are simpler than before due to the heartbreaking loss of Starcrunch on lead guitar and Dexter X on rhythm. This is a good album but it lacks the depth that Starcrunch was able to give their music and live performances and watching my videos of pre-E.E.V.I.A.C. shows only reestablishes that fact. They do explore new terrain however with "Myopia" which is a long and slow drift through space reminiscent of The Murmen. "Reversal of Polarity" is sheer brilliance along with "Engines of Difference." I've discovered that this album is best appreciated when listened to loud. This band is still the best band out there but Blazar and Trace Reading have some mighty big moon boots to fill.
