Sunn O))) has been quite a good band ever since they decide to stop being purely an Earth tribute band and start doing things with their own personal flair to it. Still, on this record, it seems like Sunn O))) is not an Earth tribute, but rather some kind of Earth parody. If that's the case, the joke isn't funny. If that's not the case, it's still not very good. The album is an exercise in drawing things out way longer than they need to be. That opening monologue by Julian Cope? Way too long and unnecessary. And even after that there's still fifteen minutes of the song to go. The second track is ruined by whatever those things meant to resemble drums are, and while the closer is decent enough, it doesn't make up for the songs before it. It's a good thing they'd turn it around later, because the questionable choices made here are a detriment to the record.
