Kwok's Quease is a CD bonus, originally the B-side to The Set Up single.

The follow-up to "Immunity", with some of the same feeling and some direct development away from the original. I would like to comment on the "small film" formed by the two songs "Dark windows" and "the Sniper", which tell a story of leadership and assassination that puts many of Hollywoods feeble attempts at moviemaking to shame. This is great storytelling!
Also in a class of its own is "the Outsider", an incredibly haunting and beautiful song using wind as a major instrument, much like "Dark windows" has a very musical rainstorm providing percussion to its story.
Music making rarely gets this good. Only a handful of the several hundred records I have heard since this came out actually comes near it in musicianship. Very very few trump it. This, and "Immunity" before it, are records for the ages.
