    Love that Fluke track, and was rather annoyed to discover I don't actually own a copy (I have U-Six and Atom Bomb, both off the Wipeout: 2097 soundtrack). Also, another bunch of music on this that I wouldn't have expected to encounter in your collection; curiously, there's once again something in there that sounds quite a bit like The Killers. Something to do with keyboard string sounds and peculiar vocal techniques, maybe. Due to being distracted by other things I didn't take note of a specific track, alas.

      Oh yeah. Whatever was going on around 45 minutes in sounded like a slightly demented version of Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill. Which, well, it's not the most sane piece of music to begin with.

        That's The Knife's "F as in Knife." Thanks for placing that reference for me. They're an interesting band with really strange videos.

    I really liked their "We Are Pilots" album, but the guy's vocals in "Ricochet" is just grating to me. Is this representative of the rest of the album?

    Apparently, that track's also known as Zeigeist's "Tar Heart," Zeigeist being a side project of The Knife. There's a weird live version - dancing clowns - with a few other Zeigeist songs as related videos.
