3 stars Although this album contains some great tracks (Teeth, and parts of Virtually), it somehow feel disjointed. This is not helped by the poor recording quality (perhaps it is better on the CD). Wyatt left soon after recording it, as Hopper and Ratledge flat out told him they did not like his passionate-style drumming. However, this album achieves an atmosphere ('malaise' perhaps?) that is special and that I have never heard anywhere else.
