    Some songs on this album sound as if the lead guitar and the percussions had been recorded in different rooms where they could not hear each other. Like Frank Zappa’s xenochrony. That’s probably my own perception and not based on facts but it’s one of the reasons why I like the record. Not many people do: The reviews I found in the net are mostly negative.

    My copy has a gatefold cover made of structured cardboard.
