This section covers the 17 albums & several full-length releases that don't quite fit in elsewhere (Sonic Death, Screaming Fields of Sonic Love, Made in USA, SYR4, The Destroyed Room, and SYR9). Most of the album capsules were written prior to 2002, though I've tried to update any glaringly outdated bits of information.
