    I bought this (on CD) shortly after it came out after I heard it playing in my local record store.
    At times it's quite a heavy-going album to listen to, especially the track "Face", but it's one that I immediately recommend to my friends - and sometimes force them to listen to.
    Not sure how many times I've listened to "This Clouded Heart" in the thirty years since it's release, but I guess it would be in the hundreds.
    I personally don't find Steve Fisk's music production on this dated at all, although I tried some of his solo material and didn't enjoy it nearly as much.
    Although I now finally have the vinyl pressing and cherish it, I also hope that it will be reissued someday (and/or available on Spotify) so more people have the chance to experience it.

      Steve Fisk's background/mood music does it's job but hasn't aged all that well, to be fair. But this really isn't about the music, anyway. An essential album if you're into the late 80's/early 90's Seattle/grunge scene and wanna go deep, real deep.

        Darkly incredible. Definitely not one to throw on all the time, but when you’re in that mood it’s great! Spoken word in the vein of William S. Burroughs with experimentally bold musical accompaniments. The replay ability here is quite high and the production keeps things engaging. Outstanding.
