My copy is as described ( No inner sleeve with lyrics and blue mercury label) but has a glossy band pic cover...

What is it about this album? Taken on their own the tracks are good, occassionally great but listened to as a complete album it becomes something wonderful and is perhaps my most played album of all time.

It has dreamy but insistant feel from the start(unsurprising given the drug-soaked state of the band - see Julian's autobiography. The pulsing bass line of Ha Ha I'm Drowning, leads into Sleeping Gas which seems to come at you without taking a breath. The single Treason somewhat breaks the mood and was never a favourite of mine. The only downside of this release is that Reward is just "plonked in" and sounds like the afterthought it was. The side finishes with my favourite Teardrops track of all, the trancy Poppies with its backward guitar.

On Side 2 the band wakes up from the dream and the tracks are livlier and faster and the side seems to race to the Thief of Baghdad which is slower. The final track When I dream is a great pop song and the stand out track on side 2, although I still prefer the original production to be found on the compilation "Piano".
