5 stars This cd is rapidly becoming one of my favorites. The remaster version of this 1983 album is excellent quality. Frith sounds as bright and fresh on guitar as ever. As always, Friths mastery of MANY instruments keeps the album diverse and interesting all the way through 15 tracks. This album is certainly not to be overlooked. While maintaining a certain strangeness and complexity, the album is so smooth that it should be accessible and enjoyable to a large audience of prog fans, yet it's variety will make good many repeated listens. In many ways, this album is reminiscent of a work by the Resident's: short clever songs, exellent musicianship yet not pretentious and lyrically very light and jovial with strong social undertones. If you're looking for a place to start into Frith's catalogue, I highly recommend this album.
