Motive's full length definitely showed a mature musical progression from their Doctrine of Scripted Torture 7". This record maintains a lot of the controlled chaos found on the 7", but finds itself drifting into far more melodies than before. I'm pretty sure this is the last legitimate release from Motive. They did a demo towards the very end of their existence, but something had definitely changed, and it wasn't nearly as good as their previous recordings.

Hi. I used to be the guitarist in Motive and I would just like to say thanks for keeping this stuff alive!
