secret weapon for the very sad doing very sad mixes, side 2 is where its at, bells and voices and should have said its a beautiful lyric and beautifully sung. And obviously the original knocks everyone out the park

yep some of it is 'beautiful', and the cover image encourages this, but i don't want long 'beautiful ' tracks which comfort, i like that they sound like film cues, like teaser trailers. let stuff be unfinished, let it be unpolished. what is interesting ... See full review

what a great name for a record! and it has 'the crete that crete made' a track that went on every tape comp I made, the sleeve is wonderful as well, sometimes we forget that this time was also about stupid fun

this record seems to get better with the years and unlike some from this period doesn't sound dated, think it sold bad and was seen as a disappointment at time so they never did anything else

What a record!(cd actually), single piercing acoustic horn slowly joined by jet engine noise and eventually drums, whole sound circles for an hour before eventually slipping way. Sound of a monster.
