This is an ablum that has to be persevered with, yet will reward those who allow it to. There are many dark and wonderful moments - but, to be honest, it's the overall tone that is most arresting. I find that I go through phases of playing this album over and over again, back-to-back, which is something I very rarely do. It is certainly disturbing, serving up a girl's mutilated body, and then loosely weaving a vague story around it. The segues take a little getting used to, but I have to say, the victim's line, "Something's going to be horrid", as "Hello Spaceboy" opens up lingers long after "Strangers When We Meet" has faded away. It is at times chaotic, rambling, bafflingly opaque, and is all the better for it. Deserves much more recognition.
