This is Robert Wyatt's first album since he unofficially went on "strike" after Britain voted for the Conservatives *again* in 1992, and it is absolutely fantastic.
All the old favourites are back: Phil Manzanera, Evan Parker, Brian Eno and, more unusually, Paul Weller (who makes an excellent contribution). Gone are the in-your-face political lyrics that could sometimes be a bit cringeworthy (a la Dondestan), in are fantastic lyrics, amazing tunes, fabulously rich and complicated musical textures, and above all the sound of a load of excellent musicians having fun!
The first track, "Heaps of Sheeps", really gets you in the mood with good basslines, a wonderful beat, and lyrics that are faintly similar to "Soup Song" in that they use a very strange metaphor to describe what he thinks his place is in the scheme of things.
Other songs include Blues in Bob minor, which harks back to those clever Dylan lyrics where every word means several differennt things, and The Duchess, which features a very odd, swaying texture, with Evan Parker very prominent.
Critics described this as the best album since "Rock Bottom", and they're right. An absolute must for anyone who has liked Wyatt's stuff in the past, and a very good introduction for those who haven't heard Wyatt before to the extreme versatility he (and the other musicians) have.
Buy it!

I love Rock Bottom and Ruth is Stranger than Richard. Shleep is as good - Robert at his challenging best. It is a complete album, with no tracks you want to skip.
I return to it often, and am never disappointed. Thanks, Robert.

One if Robert Wyatt's best works
I highly recommend this.I would listen to this along with Cuckooland -they're both thoughtfully composed and written but never lose his quirky sense of humor.
