4 stars This album is a great Residents album. Much slower than a lot of them but with a real good spooky ambiance. Really ambiental and worth listening. It's really weird and full of the Residents' ghost stories. For myself, one of their best records if you look at the ambiance, the sound and the quality of arrangements though not a Residents essential like Duck Stab or Not Available. It's also a great reminder of the shows they made before the album's release (wich was actually an incredible show.) It's really spacey. Great use of tension chords and great respect of the chords. The musicians seem good to my musician ears (even though there's no drum in the album since Carlos left the band for he's an asshole.) There's a great new version of Lizard Lady in this album.

I truly say it's one of the best I heard from the Residents but it's not quite representative from their work and you need to have heard a lot of Residents to fully appreciate this album.
