This must be the most unpolished album I own. Sounds like it's recorded in Howe's living room, at the hospital and other locations. Some parts of the album cannot be described as other than noisy, making you wish you had turned the volume down. But if you accept the low fi quality of the recording, you will find some realy touching tracks on this album. After a while, the initial untidy impression turns to a feeling that is real and expresses a very fragile and sore mood. lovely! This album kept me listening for months at end. Favorite tracks are 4 door maverick, propulsion and creeper.
