1 stars Bah! More ugly keyboards by the Residents on another early 80's recording. I love keyboards, so when I say ugly, I mean burst eyeball ugly. A far more annoying album than its predecessor 'A Tale of Two Cities' which was, in itself crap. The Residents never scraped the barrel lower in their whole career than with this nonsense.

Homer Flynn (So called manager - but vocalist) on stage with his big Prince Charles ears and greasy hair makes me even angrier listening to this. Stupid, empty music from which I defy anyone to get in touch with me and say it's their favourite album of all time. A complete waste of money and a CD I'll probably never listen to again. The extra tracks are good but are available on another release.

Far better would follow in a few years time, but this is utter garbage. The only explanation that a once wonderful band could create this dirge is that they were completely ripped at the time. Avoid Residents 82-88.
