  shuheioyama Just got my copy in the mail today. Simple square gatefold, while glossy and vibrant colors, but as others have suggested, the attention went to the sound of the LP itself. It does truly sound fantastic. I listened to the original release before I spun this 180g and the mix is superb.

I own several pressings of this including both promos. This double sided RL press is by far the best of all. It also includes the complete tracklist unlike the promo white label and none of the swear words are bleeped out. This is the one.

Lyric inser: I've had a few copies of this & the lyric insert has sometimes been printed on plain thick paper (thin card?) or on thinner textured paper. Anyone any ideas? Maybe initial pressings were the textured paper?

This record tricks you into thinking it's not going to sound good. International Feel sounds a bit off but then the real magic happens and the sound just opens up. The bass starts banging, the guitar starts cutting and the drums kick hard. I dunno, this album is mastered weird for a psychedelic effect, it like fades in and out of clear and muffled sound. Some parts sound excellent other parts a little less. Overall an above par sounding pressing though. 8/10

Without a doubt, the sound quality is really very good indeed. Over 2 LP's the fidelity is up and detail is improved. However the quality of the packaging is dire. Its a gatefold sleeve alright, completely devoid of anything other than 2 lines, one thanking Todd and the other directing you to a website. There is no track listing, and no insert with the tracklisting and lyrics like the original. In comes in a open plastic bag (a good thing don't get me wrong)

Buy this for the sound first and foremost. But the sleeve is a total and utter waste of time and a missed opportunity. Given the high price its a bit of an oversight. Still the wonderful album has never sounded better in my opinion

This album is... Weird. I had a friend who introduced me to it who simply describe it to me as Todd Rundgren...on drugs. I don't even want to know what was taken during the production of this album. This album is also fantastic. Extensive, interesting, new and that there a theme to the whole album. This is an album that doce what it says on the cover. At the court it is a strong prog album, however there are elements of just weird. The only examples I can think of would be Frank Zappa or something like John Zorn's more obscurer projects. It's a weird turn considering (I think) he's last album was "Something/Anything" which was a classic sing a song writer album released in the early 70s in inspiration from Carole King's tapestry. As I said, I don't know what was taken during the production of the album. Some of the songs do share a similarity in either what there about or what they're supposed to represent however, the style has completely changed. The songs themselves are quite funny and do have a joking elements in it which I think is it an extra bonus to this album. Now I could go into the composing/playing in this album but I think this review would take up the rest of the page if I did so. I will make note of the production on this album. This is what could class it as an experimental album from the 70s. It has so much distortion, echo and reverb on here but yet somehow Todd makes it sound great still. Nothing clashes, which I guess is a true example of what a fantastic producer Todd was and still is. Lots of cutting and pasting... it's a true example of experimental producing in the 70s when new ways of recording were made. This album is great, full of great tracks and odd ways of showing them. occasionally there are parts of the song or intervals that just don't fit however the majority of the album is pure brilliance. For someone who is used to listening to more commercial pop music or even rock music, this may be not your particular album however if you are looking to get into more obscure albums this is the necessity in your collection.
9/10
