I came across this album in a bargain record store for two quid a few years ago. I chose it for the odd cover design. The music was a pretty impressive journey. If you're into concepts, experimental music, pomp, drama, sound engineering, and prog rock, you need this album. Its one of those that you have to listen to from start to finish. Hammill's vocal range is huge. He always wanted to be the vocal equivalent of Jimmy Hendrix. The band create an engaging environment of sound whilst playing compositions endlessly changing from quiet to saturated volume from ambient to heavy, and a guest appearance from Fripp himself to boot. A strange and addictive album that grows and grows. Hammill is unique as a song writer.
