Quintessential Table of Elements release and a classic within the drone scene, Tony Conrad teamed up with Faust to make this interesting album, in which the syncopated drumming of Faust is combined with the slow violin delivery of Tony Conrad. The songs flow seamlessly following an almost natural structure, in total disregard for time and even the listener's patience. In spite of that, this is easily one of the best minimalist drone/krautrock albums I'm aware of, and one of the main reasons I enjoy listening to this album every so often.
This release isn't the original 1973 release, it belongs to the Table of Elements release, which is actually the second re-release (with three live performances) of this album, dubbed as "30th Anniversary Edition".
