The first complete version of »Eye For An Eye« including the two unreleased tracks »Sub Cahra« pt1 & pt2 that were not on the first vinyl release.

»Eye For An Eye« sounds very much like Muslimgauze material from 1993 (»Salaam Alekum Bastard«, »Veiled Sisters«). Much more laid back than their later output. I always considered this to be the best era of Muslimgauze. Sometimes the distorted glitches and rapid stop - start cuts of later releases gets on my nerves. This one, like most of their others sounds dark, dirty and hot. Just the way I like it! It was recorded as a direct follow up to Betrayal, with which this release shares common musical ground. Recorded right after the PLO signed a peace treaty with Israel, which still hasn't become effective. How prophetic can it be?

»I adore this record. For me, so much sameness exists along the lines of 'Betrayal' throughout the catalogue, and some rare, pricey items that suffer, in my mind, from sameness that I can't get beyond, such as »Maroon«. This is a way better record, in my mind. I love what Bryn did in the mix, the cascading echoing keyboard and string, perhaps synthed, cover me and hold me timeless in a place of cascading, crystalline vortices. It's all in the mix. This record makes an adventure of the sameness, breaks it all down, and turns it into texture-fields of tactile melodic density. The timeliness of the title and the current world situation, It's really a cool record, and I'm glad to be able to listen to it.«
