For the Ubu experience this is much more structured with its verses and choruses, but it is not exactly fit for smooth radio, (unlike Cloudland) it is too angular, quirky and just out-there. This would never glide into soothing an office pig pen, or helping happy consumers part with their cash in River Island - but this has more hooks than a Pirates Convention.
From the first salvo of helium in action vocals the theremins and dissonant guitars provide monomeric backgrounds, to images arising from the vast plains of the mid-west. Here the mystery of everyday worlds form in a river of smog and swirl.
David Thomas glides these structures in his self built world, operating in the same manner as Mark E Smith bobs along in his, moving on his own custom built guide-rails, as he contorts his voice to create new cartoon style timbres. Hushed vocals evoke night those quiet time drives, along white lined roads, all caught in dirty fly stained headlamps. It is here the images of life are briefly seen as the listener is wrapped up in David's vision. There are a troupe of great tracks on this platter and there is no standout because it all stands together even the single about Catherine.
Assimilating elements of a wider musical score, this fits neatly into the top end of the Ubu catalogue, with its relentless exploration of the hidden crannies enticing the listener with big bouncing tunes. A harder guitar with a touch of grunge takes it to the surreal room.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Certainly, most reviewers "in the know" about this group probably dont consider this one of their best, and who can blame them? Progress is too fast for the faint of heart, and pop is too lame for those who cannot find words for their own feelings. For those, please listen to "My Friend is a Stooge to the Media Priest".
For all the rest, listen to this clash of pop and alternative rock blast out your ears and hammer you to your couch.
The lyrics to this album are very esoteric, and very funny at times, but Beach Boys and Montana are pleasing to the ear and make me go to that special place in my mind when I'm estatic about a song.
Try something different, raise up your troubles and cares and woes, and lay them on this alter of pop.
