4 stars Widely acclaimed by critics and most fans as their best album, although I disagree. It is still a great album and the introduction of bow saws make for some weird sounding psychedelia. If anything Deserter's Songs set the mood for the epic All Is dream follow on. ' Holes' is a great starter to the album with the usual trippy, symphonically weird Donahue and Grashopper setting the moods.If anything I would say this is the most ' un prog like' album from Mercury Rev as they enter the realm of easy listening at times on catchy tunes like 'Goddess on the Highway' and ' Hudson Line'. Highlights for me would have to be the opener ' Holes', ' Opus40' and the disturbingly haunting ' Funny Bird'. Excellent overall and highly recommended.
