    That whole documentary has dated very badly. Lemon D, Adam F, J Majik...fuck off. Almost the equivalent of Britpop hubris. Horrible. Then Optical, too. Bum-fluff face harbinger of doom. Gross.

    Dillinja sequence is the only redeeming feature.
    In hindsight it's easy to spot the writings on the wall. Around late '96 they began to believe all the media-hype themselves.

    Seriously considering doing a jungle radio show.

    Over the last few months, mostly playing it very loud in the car, I've developed a soft spot for this.

    1) It's not 'Wormhole'
    2) It's not really what it thinks it is, at its best

    Loud, now, it comes across as a cheesy, massive, enjoyable, silly prog-jungle mess. In that context, it's actually lovely. And then bashed to bits by the great 'Jah - the Seventh Seal' right after.

    Not taken at face value, it's better.

    Though I think Dilinjah did the heavy lifting here?
