This starts off with smooth pop-rock, nothing against it, but then again, neither anything really in favour. The country-ballad that follows is downright horrible and a combination of the previous tracks on A3 doesn't make things any better. A4 makes us suspect that A1 actually was one of the best tracks and A5 is weak late-night soup without any salt. What a dismal bunch of songs! Side B is more or less of the same calibre, watery tea without any real flavour. But, hooray, B5 is something completely divergent. Suddenly we find eastern-tinged psych of the highest echelon! Strange harmony vocals, a spacey guitarsolo, queerly sawing synths, everything efficient and even compelling. Sounds like a completely different artist! Forty days on a stoned-out camel, moans Miki (yes, he knows some English too) and that is just how this sounds. The track ends with half a minute noisy slurping on what we presume to be a waterpipe. Great!
