Talk about a blast from the past. This tape is a retrospective of all of Denoument's work within it's short lifetime, and could be without a doubt the greatest combination of loser tracks mixed with pure brilliance in between. Not since Devo's "Greatest Misses" have I heard music so abundantly awful, and then been slapped in the face hard by the sheer growth and talent explosion that ensued over a period of three years, and forty-five minutes of tape. An excellent overview of the band's lifetime work, if you can survive such atrocious tracks as 'megalomania', you'll eventually get to some really entertaining electronic music.
