My copy has "RZ-8052-L-A Re2 LKIKS ▭◯▭ L-2731" on the A-side without "S-13590" and "RZ-8052-L-B Re1 L-2731-X" on the B-side like the other second press edition. So I have no idea which release it belongs to, or if it belongs to another release!

One of the best record covers ever! This album and "Duck Stab/Buster And Glen" are the Residents best imo. Both highly recommened. As is their collaboration with Renaldo & The Loaf, "Title In Limbo".

A minute can really be a lifetime. And this is The Residents' most commercial collection indeed for, in their typically strange manner, here are no less than 40 hits. Humourous as they are quite nightmarish. The group even encourages us to combine these into strange variations which might turn into 'verses' and 'refrains' of even stranger choice.

Some of these, er, songs, found their way onto the group's fascinating 'One Minute Videos' collection - among these, 'Simple Song', despite the fact entire 'Commercial Album' stands the test of time, does make the most rewarding hit.

A masterpiece of twisted avant-garde - however, if staying alone in your house at night, don't play this and dream alone - it is one hell of a strange trip.
