Tracklist

Notes

Was intended to contain audio, but Danger Mouse feared legal repercussion, due to a dispute he was having with EMI at the time.

Package contains all artwork which was intended for the release. Packaged in a 104-page hardback book, which contains photos taken by David Lynch, a foreword by Danger Mouse, and selected lyrics intended for the album.

Limited to 5000 individually numbered copies. Copies ordered directly from Danger Mouse also included an exclusive poster.

This "album" was also released without the book, but with an alternative poster (folded) and the blank CDr (DNOTS2).

I don't know where to begin with this review. First off it is an absolute tragedy that those wankers at EMI stopped this album's release. This album is an absolute classic, dark and sweet like Bournville chocolate. It is an album of such immense quality that I find it difficult to try and analyze just what it is that makes it great or specify the core elements of the sound. The Iggy Pop contribution is literally the best thing he has written since the 70's (god mixed with monkey?), Frank Black sounds better than ever before, The Flaming Lips make bitter revenge and madness seem somewhat fun, Rhys from super furry animals sounds as elegant as something from Rubber Soul, Jason Little almost brings a tear to the eye with his two renditions and even David Lynch brings 2 great tracks to the record. Don't get me wrong though, EVERY SONG is good and the album works as a whole.

There is not a single bad song on this album. Highly recommended for fans of The Beatles, Flaming Lips and the Stooges and pretty much anyone who enjoys music with a bit of depth. Where so many concept albums fail this one succeeds with flying colors even if all of which are shades of gray.
