    The opening tracks' motorik rhythms--all Juno-G keyboards and Roland bass--suggest an M1 retread of Autobahn undone by the spectre of sleep, but later tracks like the howling Pennine drones of A Non-Place imply a final destination far from the shoulder; somewhere overgrown, primitive and ancient.
