Jarring, atonal guitar chords paired with eerie, apathetic vocals and an unsettling record cover to boot, this is straight up one of those records you'll end up hating or loving at repeated listens. Certainly a unique musical experience but not for the faint-hearted.
One of the most unsettling things ever put to record. Atonal acoustic guitar sung over by an equally tone deaf vocalist. I have no idea what he's singing about to be honest but with song titles like "Naked in the Afternoon" I think I'd prefer not to. There really is nothing out there quite like Jandek, and I'm not sure whether that's good or bad.
