I came to this album after the malibu ken project this year, and, I must say, I'm glad I did.

Ultima II Massage is a complete mess of short, noisy, weird, harsh and, sometimes, somewhat repulsive tracks that manage to be very catchy, beautiful and memorable. The album as a whole manages to be both fun and cohesive, not having really any specific bad points.

FAV TRACKS: Streaker, Eruption, Lipstick Destroyer, Self Tanner, Beast Sting, Creaming for Beginners, The Touch from Within
I didn't think music like this could feel cohesive in any way. I was proven wrong with this one. Perhaps the only Tobacco/BMSR release that sounds like it isn't just a bunch of songs thrown together. Also, it's a catchy blast
This record has all the eccentricity and weirdness that a Black Moth Super Rainbow album lacks. This is a pretty good collection of crazy sounds and brief distorted and overdriven songs that blend together really well molding an overall fun and uncompromising, but still coherent experience.
Distorted voices and synth waves create aural, art pieces as repulsive as intended.
Listening to Ultima II Message is like melting inside a weird colorful alternative universe, I guess.

This album also manages to be super relaxing whilst also being really noisy.

faves: Streaker, Eruption, Lipstick Destroyer, Face Breakout, Blow Your Heart, Beast Sting, Omen Classic, Pool City McKnight Road, Father Sister Berzerker
