3 stars I'm not sure why they're under Psychedelic / Space Rock this is more in the Heavy-Prog field and all instrumental. Very prominant bass here with guitar and drums standing out, with some flute and little in the way of keyboards. This American band thanks "the mighty DJAM KARET for the inspiration to make conceptual music". Some cool pictures in the liner notes including one from the TV show "My Three Sons". The scary thing is I barely remember the show yet I could name Uncle Charlie and Ernie without even thinking. There's also a picture of Mr.Rogers.

I find the music too samey and unfortunately the first thing I noticed was that the sound quality wasn't the best. The drums do not sound right. Maybe this is a product of living in an age where we get such great sounding music most of the time but this did affect my enjoyment of this disc.

Around the Internet this is getting some good praise so I don't want to sound too negative. I enjoy their style but find it difficult to even offer up 3 stars,even if some feel this 1992 album is a minor American classic. I can't agree unfortunately. Barely 3 stars.
