This album really has never sounded so good!
Co-produced by Peter and David Lord this is the first album where Peter really immersed himself in the music of distant lands and cultures. It was also his first fully digital recording. These two elements created a deeply effective soldering-together of futurism and generations-old tradition. The single Shock The Monkey became Peters first top 30 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
"These studio albums reflect the modus operandi of someone whose approach to recording was as meticulous as a diamond cutter... The results are captured splendidly here, allowing precise imaging, rich timbre, and clear inner detail to merge with increasingly earthy rhythms and deep drum tones - call it primal perfectionism." - Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound, March 2016, Music 4/5, Sonics 4/5!
Half-Speed Remastered and cut to lacquers at 45RPM, across two heavyweight LPs to deliver maximum dynamic sound range. Vinyl cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis and overseen by Peters main sound engineer Richard Chappell. These albums really have never sounded so good! They also look amazing with the gatefold sleeves utilizing imagery from the initial release, sourced and re-scanned from original artwork.

"...if you listen to the 45rpm 1/2-speed remasters that we've done, PG 1,2,3 or 4, it's as good as listening to the original master tapes, perhaps in some places perhaps even more pleasurable listening..." - Matt Colton, Alchemy Mastering
