about

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.

"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". – Exposé

"While not a full-fledged dark ambient album, Suspension and Displacement unmistakably bears that genre's stamp, full of shifting, unsettling, arhythmic soundscapes that drift like fog into the listener's subconscious. Found sounds, tape experiments, white noise, and acoustic instruments supplement the arrangements, which evoke not only more modern ambient music but also spacy progressive rock from the '70s; in fact, one of the most obvious touchstones is the creepiest material on Brian Eno's Another Green World. Like Burning the Hard City, Suspension and Displacement isn't really representative of Djam Karet's signature sound, but for fans, it's a fascinating stylistic excursion that resembles little else in the group's catalog." – AllMusic
