My copy of this release has a Gatefold Sleeve and has no Embossed PRS Hannover logo on backcover.
The rest is the same.
Why is this a reissue? Tell me.

i first heard this record near the end of high school, which positioned me directly in the record's target audience. it's a record that attempts to combine the silly side of the beatles with the innocence of syd barrett, german nursery rhyme melodies and the general feel of a lewis carroll story: a deadly hook for any pothead in his or her late teens or early twenties.

while the first half of the record does stumble around at a fairly decent pace, it gets bluntly trite after third uncle, with the exception of china my china. but, i'll also argue that "yesterday" is trite. seriously. most claim that i have no soul.

no, seriously, it's difficult to find that middle point between "carefree" and juvenile. while eno nails it on the first half of the disc, what kind of dour adult could despise the instrumental middle of "back in judy's jungle" or the caterwauling guitars in "third uncle", even if the bass part is a rip on one of these days?, he falls completely into juvenility on the second half, reciting nursery rhymes and singing with a piano like a clown with a grade school audience. this is an issue with all of eno's pop records, though, and while it's as bad here as it is anywhere else, at least it's mostly all pushed together here so that the disc can just be turned off halfway through when necessary. it is a shame that china my china is not forward a few tracks as i often end up missing it.

while eno is always an attraction of some sort, the biggest attraction on this particular disc is the diversity of the guitar style present. manzanera jumps effortlessly from traditional surf guitar styles to highly unconventional, deeply expressive, strongly dissonant skronking. it is required listening for anybody that is interested in writing guitar based pop music.

while eno is best understood chronologically, if you're old and you missed out on this record then you should still buy it for your kid and listen to it when they're not around.
