The gentle giants of white noise known as The Octopus Project have once again created some of the most original, organic, robotic, hypnotic melodies ever tweaked by computers or warmed by human hands.

In the two years between releases, The Octopus Project has taken the barely-controlled chaos of the band's live performance from coast to coast playing hundreds of shows, so when it came time to record again, they had a clear idea of what they wanted — a rich, surround sound, 3-D, technicolor studio amalgamation injected with the wild energy they felt in those noisy, tightly-packed clubs.

Parts of this record were recorded in concrete stairwells. Other sounds were captured in nice rooms with padded walls and studio recording equipment. No sounds were injured, although some complained loudly. Computer slaves helped with the mixing, but they are happy slaves. Happy to be mixing the best music ever instead of playing chess or computing data like they usually have to do.

This music is happiness — complex, multi-shaded, 23rd Century Joy from a band so ahead of its time they have to customize their calendars. Buy now and wait for the world to catch up.

The first 500 copies of this CD included a special 28-page directory of "All of the Champs that Ever Lived."
