2 stars Not to have this in your collection is like having a monopoly set without the hat: it's crap but it's not monoploy without it. OK so there a bunch of gnomes in purple sweaters and yellow hats running around the cover. If you've got a problem with that you're n the wrong website. (No purple gnomes good in my book).

I lerve Merta (it's totally platonic depite the rumours)., However Cocomelastico has that jazzy feel (together with nonsense warble ... alwys good to have a warble ... clinking glasses ... gargling etc) maybe i've a chip on my shoulder but jazz has makes me feel like the band are going "look we're so class we understand and FEEEL these off key bits .. you are actually too stupid to appreciate this .. now please go back and listen to Britney".

Seppia starts out a bit pants (sorry i meant to say it has an iconoclastic envelope pushing freedom). However it progresses to merely annoying: play this nowadays and you'd be locked up. I've got to say I marvel sometimes at how anything like this actually gets support from a record label. But then I don't do drugs.Seriously you've got to listen to this just to realize how mind-bogglingly dreadful it is. It firmly puts Amon Duul one of the bottom of the pile.

Bofonchia is quite sublime. having said that scraping a blackboard would sound great after Seppia. Unfortunately our respite is short.

Napier. Discordant circus music. OK if I'm one of the thicky twins and just don't get it then fine. But I don't get it. La floricultura is sufferable jazz. Bliss in comparison to the foregoing but hey it's not my bag.

I actually like La Bolla (despite the jazzy overtones). Off they manage to get through without faffing about.

Why oh why would anyone do this??

BTW Camere Zimmer Rooms is great .. this still remains pants.
