Nothing's straightforward here. First of all, there are only two "sides," not three. Each side is just one track. Each track comprises multiple short pieces (movements) separated by a few seconds of silence. The entire affair seems to be a solo effort, all electronic.

Instrumental. No FCC issues.

1 “Side 3”: The Pain of Hate / Wet / In the Atmosphere (7:14)
a. Mid-tempo. Rapid, staccato motif on toy piano; glissando electronics on Theremin perhaps. (end at 1:42)
b. Fast. Alternating telegraph-on-speed & loud rock-guitar shred. Then a big, melodic Moby-style thing. (end at 4:49)
c. Mid-tempo. Hippo farts and video-game bomb-drop sounds.

2 “Side 2”: First Contact / W8 (6:06)
a. Mid-tempo. Circus organ or hurdy-gurdy plus grumbling down below. (end at 1:46)
b. Mid-tempo. Inside a crazy clockwork or other machine. Lots of odd but fun sounds.
