"Two remarkable and important CDs of very diverse site recordings, made in Chernobyl (occupying the whole of CD1), the Caspian Oilfields around Baku (Azerbaijan), and in various UK sites, including Lakenheath, Dungeness, Sellafield, Snowdonia &c. (CD2). The CDs are accompanied by a beautifully made 90 page hardback book filled with a huge number of original colour photographs, background information, interviews and detailed documentation of the recordings, their collection, the history of the environments recorded and the curious and inadvertent inverse relation between human hazard and broader environmental recovery. This is an essential and unusual document. Peter Cusack is best-known as a member of the avant garde musical quartet, Alterations (1978-1986; with Steve Beresford, David Toop and Terry Day), and as the creator of field and wildlife recording-based albums."
