Glad to see this album re-issued, such an interesting and uncompromising album, unconventionally arranged classical and baroque pop collide and get infused with other sounds. Van's voice is also very charming and adds a very particular charm to it all. The album took a few listens to truly "get in-to" it but once it sinks it teeth in you'll fall in love. It's an unknown masterpiece, shame the track "The Eagle & Me" is not here, very good track as well. This album must have sounded quite alien at the time of it's release, ahead of it's time this one.
