I find this album horrible, as most of R. Murphy's albums. Coldly mechanised pointless technical solutions and chaotic, ad-hoc ideas as always, apart from 1-2 tracks. The "progresses" are monkeying, and there's almost no music in the songs but changes of chords and pitch, but that I wouldn't call music yet. Very overrated. Technically there's nothing new (as always) but mixture of little this and little of that but not too much of anything in order to avoid achieving a real character. The most irritating is that most of the songs are in pieces and is disturbed as usual. Vocal is OK, synth usage is acceptable but the production is extremely accidental and all the elements seems to be interchangeable and that is the worst of all. First track is one of her bests.

Apparently all copies of the Russian version (Take Her Up To Monto!) are faulty. The disc occasionally refuses to play at all and if it plays, the last 3 or 4 tracks have a "scratching" sound. The last tracks won't rip clean either.

Whoa...
Blown away by the audio, the sound, the bass, her voice.
So glad to see her moving towards more experimental music.
The long track on side D is pure headphone sex.

Glorious album, again. Even stranger and more layered than Hairless Toys, though quite different in its approach. Any idea why the album was split into two discs? The slightly longer Hairless Toys had great sound quality on just a single record, and this clocks in at just about the max for an album (~46 minutes / 23 per side). Would have at least liked to see them bump it to 45 RPM to justify spreading the compact album over four sides of wax... Oh well, excess flipping aside, it's a beautiful package and sounds lovely.

Should be the limited signed copy treated as a different release ? it contains also a signed picture of roisin.
