well, i've been a fan since the first auteurs album. luke haines is one of the most underrated and unknown rock composers of the century. so i agree completely with this "own" tribute he has made to himself ("the genious")... the intro suite hidden at the first track is amazing... IF YOU KNOW LUKE HAINES AND HIS WORK AND YOU REALLY ENJOY HIS MUSIC...THIS RECORD WILL BE A GIFT OF JOY AND PLEASURE!!!!... it is really emotional for me to listen to early tracks such as "showgirl" and "how could i be wrong?" with this beautiful and glorious string arrangements. highlights are "baader meinhof", "lenny valentino" (never been this powerful before) and the closing "future generation", where haines changes the lyrics (again) to say "I DON'T CARE WHAT THE HISTORY BOOKS SAY"... and surely he is right, this is his gift to humanity. for those who haven't heard his work: THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO SAVE YOURSELF!!!!!!! VANDALISM!!!!!!!!!
