Studying for my first major University Chemistry exam, this tape was played non-stop during November and December '91. Seems a natural progression of their sound, becoming even more wry than "Spirit of Eden". Sadly it was their last, but I guess it is good to end on a high. "Myrrhman" echoing their first outing "Mirror Man".

Later in life, there was a hippie I knew, a very kind and gentle person. The only time I saw him aggravated was when somebody tried to remove "After The Flood" from the turntable before it had played to the end!
