Oh man, he uses the back of his CD tray card for a Karl Marx quote? What a loser. Hopefully his taste in music is better than his political leanings.

I think there's a little strain of Gong (at its most jamming and improvising movements) in here. Interesting.

This "species being" thing, in itself, I would agree with 'anon' to dislike.
