review...
The inevitable Ruin double album, This contains all the best material from 9 months of sessions, amounting to a huge 109 minute opus. When compiling this, I attempted to cherry pick all the special pieces, and all those that covered territory that Ruin hadn't ventured to before, so there are lots of surprises to behold. As ever, Ruin prove to be both at the cutting edge of experimental rock innovation whilst not afraid to revisit the past and did into other genres like freeform avant-garde, Krautrock, psycho dub, space rock, and that unclassifiable area tat they often work in between the new wave and post rock.
