Compactor "Desensitization Reprocessing" cs

Desensitization Reprocessing
Out of Body Records

More bleak and fearful industrial hypnosis from Compactor. I am not a huge fan of this genre in general but there is something maniacal about Compactor that totally works for me. It sounds like—I should actually say it feels likeit was made in the darkest point of the early 80's. There is this grit and hopelessness that also stinks of excess. It's evil in way that makes you feel like you are losing your mind. I would recommend listening to this with headphones on in the dark but only if you want to have some of your ability to love destroyed. 

     The cassette has that OOB look that I appreciate. The consistency is nice and unusual these days. They could stand to use a heavier paper stock for their J cards though. The flimsy nature of the paper feels cheap. 

Still if scary, 80's death industrial hell is your bag, get this.
