5 stars I think this is a highly underrated, undiscovered and untalked-about album that is definately a masterpiece. I haven't understood why "Klossa Knapitatet" is recommended here when this album smokes it. I have listened to the former enough to realize that nothing grew on me, at least to the comparison as it being SMM's best album. Actually, SMM performed this album written and composed by Gregory Allan FitzPatrick, so perhaps I should be giving him credit and reviewing him. However, the band executes this well. It doesn't take very long to appreciate the aesthetic compositions here. The first song is like a mini-symphony with tempo changes as fast as cat-chase-mouse music (orchestral stuff I might hear in a Tom and Jerry cartoon episode) and as slow as a cautious piano tip-toeing its way to a musical climax. The other songs offer interesting sound effects to the songs included in the symphonic structures such as whistling, cartoony noises, vocals, and other interesting keyboard samples. In each song the tempo varies from very fast to slow, contrively changing throughtout. The piano playing is simply gorgeous and interact well with the other instruments. Simply put, this album is mandatory.
