I take credit for basic tracks on 4, 6, 10, 11, 15 & 16. The others are recorded really badly! I mixed the whole thing after Devin got done recording it, so it's a really good mix of some really poor tracks. Don't get me wrong, I like the songs a lot! But to save money, Devin put together his own studio and recorded most of this himself, after starting six songs with me. He's a great musician but a lousy engineer!

Devin and Eric went on to form Entropy with a new bassist and drummer. MP3s of this entire CD are on Devin's site: Black X Music.
