Suprisingly, this album is actually pretty tight and explores precussion and harmonics really well. X, the 20 minute long opener, feels complete and never feels that it is meandering, and is always progressing and flowing into a new idea that just works. They take elements of jazz to experiment with different sounds. Overall, the album is very good in terms of range. For those who want to hear something new thats not overly intense or overwhelming.

4.0 excellent

The thing I like Ruins most for is their wild
stop-and-go type of style. They go from fairly
confusing shouting and shrill vocals and
follow it up with some of the most complex
bass solos that are among my favorite solos
ever. I personally feel that
Hyderomastgroningem is 90's Ruins at their
best. Confusing, intense, complex, and fast.
Some of the stuff that the bassist, Ryuichi
Masuda, does with his pedals and playing style
makes the entire album never feel old, even
though it being a hour and seven minutes. It's
music thats hard to get into, but if you
already are into zeuhl you might as well check
it out.
