An exoteric, psychedelic journey through the endlessly cryptic soundscapes of the early progressive-rock scene, mixing both enigmatic songwriting and fantastic, surrealistic sound crafting, polished by jazzy arrangements and off-kilter vocals by the legendary Robert Wyatt. Visionary!

I don't know why, but Wyatt's voice irked me so much. I felt he hit some notes that he really wasn't capable of hitting, and this made the album much less enjoyable than it could have been.

fav tracks: Little Red Riding Hood Hit the Road
