Taken essentially from ISDN, which was recorded live from an internet show, Far-Out Son of Lung and the Ramblings of a Madman is a decent little sampler CD. Though revolving around a motif of beats and percussion, there tends to be a bit of an improvisational feel to the group's electronic music, which is actually quite a neat trick if you can pull it off. A lot of the sounds are unconventional for the most part, often with different little effects bouncing and echoing around in space and leaving the listener with the task of sorting things out to make sense of it. Luckily the music is tame enough to harness so that the process isn't painful or difficult. A lot of horn samples are used throughout the album, giving it a bit of a more exotic feel than previous FSOL releases. The lonesome guitar plucking sample at the beginning of "Smokin' Japanese Babe" tends to add to this exotic, far-away-from-home feel.
Overall the music presented here is much less danceable and more suited for ambient journeys than anything. And it only will be slightly disturbing.
