Burning The Hard City and Suspension & Displacement are reissues of the two albums that were released simultaneously in 1991, each showcasing a very different side of their work.
Exposé noted that "Djam Karet took the two main drivers of their music, hard-edged guitar work and electronic ambient, and forcibly separated them...this was...the ultimate defining moment for Djam Karet, as it proved just how broadly talented, visionary and artistic the band could be, while also showcasing their finest songwriting to date. Using dual guitars, keyboards, bass & drums, the sound on Burning The Hard City is probably their heaviest ever.
"Guitars crunch, slash, crash and bang through a bundle of hard driving prog rock cookers. Think 1973 and King Crimson..." - Keyboard.
