Like Half Machine Lip Moves On Some Faraway Beach, this final genius stroke from these increasingly warped Californian post punk merchants (following my posts of their Happiness And Contempt and Montage Morte EP's, the latter of which shares a few tracks with this album) ratchets up the stakes significantly; their angle of approach here weaving Chrome-plated and dystopian shaded tangents through a series of emotionally loaded and pop savvy oblique advances that are absolutely breathtaking in their collective impact. This album was shopped around all over back in the day and deemed "too weird" by one and all. Feh! Silly children...they missed the boat on a stone cold classic; one you now have the privilege of discovering thanks to William Shifflette from Null &Void, who has graciusly made this monster available for public consumption.
Note: link removed, as this has now been formally released for the first time via Bunkerpop's new LP pressing of this gem.
