2 stars It is possible that I am just not used to this, so called Canterbury music. First two tracks on this album are depressive and boring to me. Third one starts with voice, which gives it some human touch and feeling. Robert Wyatt has extraordinary, interesting voice, but whole track is not impressive to me. It is guided by bass and some easy and siple drumming, and for the first time I hear guitar that sounds normal. In first track it creates some strange noise, which anybody can easily create now on some guitar sampler. It is distorted to the limit where it really sucks. I am not sure why this band stoped using vocals and turn to some jazz masturbations, that make no much sense in that particular moment and place. Might be because singer was leaving the band, and they stayed with no choice. Most of the album is not melodic at all, and it does not necessary stands as a wrong thing, but for those who like melodies, many dissonant places here will not be impressive.
