3 stars This album is a mixed business. The title track is punk before the punk movement. (He has always been ahead of his time musically). Although there are some other songs in the punkish style, they do not reach the same level as Nadir and remain neglifgible. Apart from these songs, some other songs are more into the Hammill vein that we love; mainly "Institute of Mental Health" which is a weird but delicious song about a fire in an inmates institute. It also has the superb "Shingle" which sends shivers down my spine everytime I hear it, as well as "Pompei" and the wonderful "Been Away so Long". Mixed business, ahead of its time, but not essential.
