Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the album is where you identify the parts that came from Sunn's compositions. It's not an easy thing to do; a lot of the music feels like original material, even when it's Jackson Conti Upa Neguinho. But those Gilberto Gil Jorge Ben Gil Jorge when you get the realization that "hey, this is one of Sunn's riffs!
See, Nurse With Wound did not just take Sunn's riffs and simply changed the instrument, or threw in their own parts on top, they literally changed the whole tone of the music, and made it their own. This is why you can listen to Sunn riffs repeat a few times before realization strikes you; they blend in that well with the new tone and ambience. My favorite part happens in their reinterpretation of Ra At Dawn. On Nurse With Wound's reinterpretation it's the same idea, but the guitar is replaced with shimmering bright ambience, which changes the dynamic completely.
It's simultaneously pretty as opposed to Sunn's dark version and overbearing, but overbearing in a very different way than Sunn's version.
Sunn's version feels like being crushed under large weight, this version feels like an endless light you can't hide from.

According to the track listing on my bonus copy, there are just Sunn O Meets Nurse With Wound The Iron Soul Of Nothing tracks on offer: the two parts of "Ra at Dawn" have been combined into one. No matter! Case in point: "Dysnystaxis The half-hour sojourn of haunting serenity never reaches a peak, simply layering bleakness atop of beauty till the nerves are frayed.
While Sunn O may have handed the album over to be reworked, NWW re-imagined it in its entirety, and that's a testament not only to Sunn O 's ability to inspire, but also to NWW's stubborn creative vision; not that either was in any doubt.
