I didn't see any responses to your questions, even though I am always 
curious what everyone else thinks.

Here's a few thoughts from me.

I didn't think so.  I seem to remember that Subduing Demons was part of a 
series of releases, including Loopstatic and D at N.  Do you recall the use of 
similar samples between those works?  I personally didn't find such 
simularities in either samples or other between Bush Doctrine or Subduing 
Demons, but on the other hand, what do I know? ;-)

I think Kirk is the man of a thousand sounds, it does seem like 'in the old 
days', or maybe we should call it 'the nineties', you never knew what you 
were going to get.  New monikers came out of nowhere, and really, a dark 
magus album didn't sound like a sandoz album, which didn't sound like a 
sweet exorcist album, etc.

I still find this last collection URP to have come out of nowhere.  As it 
does feature tunes from the mid-late nineties to '00 or so, I think you'll 
find that there's going to be some familiar sounds on this one.  As it is 
very beat/dance oriented, I don't think you'll be saying that it reminds you 
of BCD or TWAT, although it may remind you of other material.

As always, just my $0.02, and as always, looking forward to what Kirk'll do 

Keep on,
