More Info:

Vinyl LP pressing. The first complete version of Eye For An Eye, including the two unreleased tracks "Sub Cahra pt1" and "Sub Cahra pt2" that were not on the first vinyl release. Eye For An Eye sounds very much like Muslimgauze material from 1993 (Salaam Alekum Bastard, Veiled Sisters). Much more laid back than their later output, it could be the best era of Muslimgauze. This one, like most of their others sounds dark, dirty, and hot. It was recorded as a direct follow up to Betrayal, with which this release shares common musical ground. Recorded right after the PLO signed a peace treaty with Israel, which still hasn't become effective. Much sameness exists along the lines of "Betrayal" throughout the catalog, and some rare, pricey items that suffer from sameness, such as "Maroon". What Bryn did in the mix is interesting; the cascading echoing keyboard and string, perhaps played by synths, is timeless in a place of cascading, crystalline vortices. It's all in the mix. This record makes an adventure of the sameness, breaks it all down, and turns it into texture-fields of tactile melodic density. The timeliness of the title and the current world situation.
