5 stars Indeed, American feeling is strong here. After all, it's not bad to deny your heritage and I have no problem with that. Well, I like it, it's just another way of doing good music, use your background, things around you and blend them to something bigger. Fun sounds quite like Sheryl Crow's "All I Wanna Do", so after reading story of her/his life, it's all more clear. I'll not go into repeating the story again, as other did it far better that I would be able to, but I like it and can appreciate it. Well written and composed concept albums always attracts me, as I like reading, in this case listening stories. Music is very various, as Gilbert's category is eclectic, he truly belongs under this definition. Even I don't like these categories (as they confuses as much as they helps), sometimes they tells the truth.

5(-), as I don't see as much perfection here as in The Wall, another dramatical story about music star. But both are different, this one is more modern one. Suit Fugue is probably the most original idea I've heard in many days. I like irony tone here. Almost masterpiece and after all, it is. But that's of course not fair, everything fails when compared to bricky, vertical structure (masterpiece number 1 in my mind). But if something can do similar thing in different way, then I'm amazed. How could not I be.
