This is my favourite Hiero album. No Need For Alarm a close second. It was a grower though - I was a little disappointed at first as it didn’t really have the stand out cuts that the Souls of Mischief album had. And that’s still probably true - it’s an album I have to listen to start to finish. Love the way the tracks flow together - Get Off It into That’s How It Is into the Saafir skit is especially pleasing.
I love it’s slighter darker sound compared to the Souls of Mischief album. Lose In The End and Me-O-Mi-O are probably my favourite tracks - both Domino beats. Love those samples.
But yeah, great album. Big fan of Heiro. Think I first heard them when 93 'til Infinity came out and they were playing it in Slam City Skates. Skateboarders all seemed to really like them - think it was their whole aesthetic. Always on skate video soundtracks.
Also love how they embraced the web early on too. I remember buying a few unreleased things from their webstore back in the late 90s, including a Del album and Focus by Souls of Mischief on tape!
Also just read that he was 17 when this came out! Jesus.
