Originally released in 2000 on a criminally rare triple-pack of 12"s, Shapes was pressed with a label including nothing more than geometric forms superimposed on a black background. With this CD reissue, Bola finally takes credit for crafting a foreboding soundtrack to a streamlined future lifted straight out of the pages of a William Gibson novel. While still musically relevant, this futurist tack almost seems quaint when compared to the present-a world in which pandemic flu, dirty nukes, and ever-encroaching government surveillance seem much more plausible than any dystopian technopolis that Bola could dream up.
