some of you missed this,
This review is from: Escalator Over the Hill (Audio CD)
First heard this around 1980 and I thought that it sounded like it was recorded 30 years into the future - I'd heard nothing like it previously and i'd listened to loads of weird stuff. Listening to it again in 2012 and it still sounds like 30 years into the future. Absolute genius full stop.
You won't like much of it at first, but persevere, and a strange thing happens - all of the other music you have previously liked starts to sound vacuous and lame, false, without real emotion or daring, safe boring and rubbish. You will find yourself humming or singing snatches of strange melody and lyric and if you do this in public people will think you are touched. If I were cast away on a desert island and could have only one record, this would have to be it. I'm not pretending i know what it's all about because I haven't got a clue and I really don't think it matters at all.
