1 stars This album opens on a reworked version of their B-side "Spiral Staircase" (it backed their great "She Was Naked"). I wasn't quite convinced by the original and its weirdness is just the same in this revisited version.

Weirdness. That's what this album is all about. All the "Supersister" friends are back together for this last studio album, but the magic is gone. They went too far in their crazy attitudes and I have to say that one can get lost while listening to this work.

It reminds me the studio part of "Ummagumma", but more fun. Still, good numbers are hard to find. The repetitive instrumental "Dangling Dingdongs", maybe.

This curiosity is available on a cheap Polydor release (as all their repertoire). You get "Iskander" and this one for a budget price on one CD. The only option to avoid spending to many euros on these quite dispensable records.

And the laughing gnome (nothing to do with the other one you might know) who is the vital lead of this "work" might be funny for a while, but this is his only interest.

Three out of ten, maybe...
