4 stars This is my favourite Zammla Mammaz Manna album. Avant prog is the term most suited to this weird and wacky recording from 1980. It's pretty much instrumental and mostly very proggy sounding, but played brilliantly, effortlessly and with a bit of joy in their hearts.

Occasionally frantic, sometimes downright unusual (eg. blowing in bottles half way through the tune). Quite different in sound to Sammla Mammas Manna from years past. At the risk of contradicting myself, this is complex and quite off the wall but is one of the easiest to listen to RIO albums I've heard.

Crammed to the gills with ideas and inventiveness, I'm sure they could have made a double album out of this no bother. In a way, it's like a far more listenable Zappa with a lot more going on and is a lot more professional in its execution.

A super album which is completely unpredictable, cheery and energetic that only fails the perfect score by a short margin.

Dobermensch | 4/5 |
