"A deluxe reissue of Jarboe's limited-edition private press '98 album: remastered, with 3 bonus tracks, presented in an oversized six-color, 16-page booklet, replete with exclusive photos by Richard Kern; Anhedoniac is the third reissue in Atavistic's series for the avant-auteur/ex-Swans/chanteuse. Anhedoniac is Jarboe's 3rd solo album, the first since 1995's Sacrificial Cake; like that album, this one is quite varied musically: quiet acoustic guitar, sound atmospheres (Panasonic mixed 'Panasonic in Red Dirt'; Mark Spybey's work graces 'Forever'), bell-like tones, manic samples, slow grinding guitars. Some tracks are quiet and sparse, some are harsh somewhat like early 80's Swans; the music seems more similar to Sacrificial Cake than Swans, but this album has more of a raw sound & feel."
