    So I finally gave this a listen, and it's pretty tight. Some of the lyrics cross into cringe territory, but hopefully if you're considering this you are down to have a little fun, and being ridiculous is what prog is all about. And I guess this is prog, though mostly in its scope, and not in technical ability... they're not mathy AT ALL... at times the band is actually a little busted. In a good way again tho.

    "True Life Hero" has some pretty sick riffs, but again, with the title, pretty cool guys. So yeah most of this album is tight. And then comes Ruggelsby and I promise I thought my wife had switched the record out with a muppets album because it straight up sounds like Rolf singing. Tickled me the wrong way, it was a little too comedy Bonzo level. Then they get right back in with some sick shit on Neutrino.

      For those born in the last thirty years or so, you might find it interesting to note that when this album appeared there were quite many people who for some unknown reason believed that Klaatu was in fact The Beatles performing under a pseudonym. How anyone could have thought this is a mystery to me, although their harmonies were vaguely in the ballpark. But it is a fact that is what many people believed. Consider I guess that people believe in UFO's so the reality is not always so important as what makes someone happy to think is reality.

        From where the Carpenters poached 'Calling Occupants'
        Lush vocoder [or voicebox] on 'Little Neutrino'
