Ultra long, ultra boring, lacking essence. This is just not worth the money for me.

Pressing is really nice, warm and clear - not too loud not too quiet. Always a pleasure to have poly lined sleeves included too!

Phenomenal LP through and through. It steers vigorously though brilliance and kaleidoscopic comedy. It is one of RV's best works of sonic art.

The sound jumps off this vinyl with a clarity and punch that is so visceraly fun. Play it on a main room sound system, or preferably a warm tube amp at home and be open minded.

Side C ... WTF? This track is absolutely a a must hear.

Side B... Reminds me from his release on Cadenza, "Achso". The technique and tone are very akin.

I don't know why I keep buying this guy's releases based on other people's reviews. Buyer's remorse every time!! Agh. How much weed do I have to smoke?

Villalobos keeps releasing great stuff. This must be one of his best though.
Sure to become an instant classic. The organic Bakasecc is the standout track for me.
