MAN OR ASTRO-MAN?
Culling material from the 1997 Australian release What Remains Inside a Black Hole, Estrus remasters, rearranges, and repackages its old B-sides and outtakes to make for an effective stopgap release. Beyond the Black Hole music CDs Of the old tracks, "Polaris" and "Surf Terror" retain the band's theremin-inspired '50s B-movie sci-fi indulgences the best. Beyond the Black Hole songs Dispensable new cuts "Green-Blooded Love" and "The Wayward Meteor" are less humorous, pointing surf guitar energies towards the harder edge of the band's later albums. Beyond the Black Hole album In the end, "The Powerful Fully-Transistorized Dick Tracy Two-Way" makes it all worthwhile, with a title that demands taking home to bed. ~ Dean Carlson
