4 stars I was shocked when I first saw the rating of this album. I thought it would have been a lot higher because it is one of his most progressive albums. No respect for superman in supermarket, indeed. Anyway, this is a very fine album. It is a lot better than his first and that's no knock on his first. The highlights for me are "Mother of Violence", "A Wonderful Day in a One-Way World", "me", "Indigo", and "Exposure" but every song here is great. "Mother of Violence" is very underrated and surely one of the most beatiful pieces he's written. "Exposure" is quite progressive with Tony playing in 5/4 against drums mostly in 4/4. Also, am I the only one that thinks "Flotsom and Jetsom" sounds like a John Lennon song? Overall, I really like this one and feel it is an underrated gem. I really like the cover art too. If I could only find all the pictures I'm in doing this pose.
