Detailed information:

"Narcotic is perhaps one example of an album in both camps of the Muslimgauze spectrum, it denotes the expertise
acquired in oriental percussion by Bryn Jones after a crescent development and practice through action, part Tribal,
part Ambient with shades of textured noise, glitch details and field recordings, as result the listener is inside this
intoxicant atmosphere of exotic madness, where the basic musical premise constituted by the consistent tribal beats
from darbukas and tambourines contrasting radically with the eerie sounds from organic noise, distortions and minimal
jams.
The opening track "Medina Flight" bangs on with a metallic sounding looped drum track that blares with distortion
at some points while background voices chant out vocals nearly throughout. The track is flavoured with other harsh
sounds and even a few woodwind sounding instruments before subsequently breaking down and starting back in
several times. "Believers of the Blind Sheikh" is a 10-minute middle-eastern sounding dub track sprinkled with live
drum sounds and more occasional vocal samples of unknown conversation. "Saddams Children" leans more toward
traditional instruments, but one can hear the gurgle of electronics lightly in the background.
The instrumentation of the album is amazing. When I first started seeing that Muslimgauze released so many albums in
such a short amount of time, I naturally thought that the quality might fall suspect, but Narcotic is a solid piece of work
that covers quite a chunk of the electronic music spectrum, although a lot of the rhythms tend to fall on a little harder
side. It manages to blend ethnic and electronic sounds into quite an interesting mix.
The images of a surrealistic desert land inhabited by the bizarre and general strangeness abounds in between the strong
rhythm usage and cinematic atmosphere unbound, subsequently the decisive progression from the album increases
this sensation. The listener easily gets submerged into this opium like state, succinctly guided by the beats and echoes
from oriental sounds that wander in and out of the speakers and far away and so close from the mind.Interesting and
attractive the album keeps a middle ground status, half experimental and other half adapted for the tribal and linear
structure common to Muslimgauze, the listener will find quite another of the many faces of this enigmatic artist."
