A bizarre collection of tidbits but perhaps the cover art says it all!

Within The Coil

DAMAGE was the first Anti-M album I purchased and I followed that with POSITIVELY NEGATIVE. Both are quite different from each other and both are quite different from this album. it H-Hurts is in fact a collection of remixes, mostly from the bands second album. Along with some song from a movie they soundtracked this album is filled with the unexpected.

For the most part it is keyboard based music but some of the guitar work really is good (security, Iniki) and the 15+ minute SENSORY OVERLOAD CHAMBER is a bit bizarre showing a bit of progressive rock and a complete disregard for following any rules of musical structure. It is almost like something Pink Floyd would have done in 1970.

Considering the odd collection of songs I would say this is one for the fans, which I now am, so if you are looking for a entry album for the band I suggest Damage, or Positively Negative. Save this one for when you need more of the band and can't get enough.

Quirky collection of remixed songs (a note from wedge of anti-m)


This is a remix album of songs from our first two albums, mostly instrumental versions of songs that had vocals on them originally. The first four tracks are from the movie YOU ONLY DIE ONCE which we supplied most of the soundtrack for. It also includes the full version of the sensory overload chamber which was cut short on NO WAVES IN HELL due to limitations in hard drive space back in 1993.

With AND without Ronnie Montrose, this is some great music

Reviewer 123

The tracks with Ronnie Montrose defintely showcase his excellent guitar style. All four tracks with RM are great; personal favorites are "Security" and "Television". Even when I'm playing the disc but not focusing 100%, when "Security" starts, I immediately know who's on guitar.

That said, do not ignore the rest of this album. The first four tracks are taken from the soundtrack they did for the film "You Only Live Once." It's a James Bond parody (duh), hence the 007-themed music. But that works well with these songs. "Nothing" is pleasingly haunting. And two of the best are the final two tracks. "The Sensory Overload Chamber (Extended)" is a frantically-paced 15-minute jam. Really good guitar work (I believe credited to Steve Weber), and some wild synthesizer (John Wardlaw) and nice interplay between the two. "Silicon Rose (Extended)" is more melodic, a nice finish to the disc.

I first discovered Anti-M searching for Ronnie Montrose music. He plays on four tracks on their "Positively Negative" disc. The remixed instrumental versions appear here on "It H-Hurts". If you like this, definitely check out the albums "Positively Negative" and "Damage".
