5 stars This record only functions when appreciated as a whole. The pieces of music seem to intersect with one another. When these musicians are working as one, and they are on this album, the various tracks seem to blend themselves into one. This kind of feat could only be achieved by musicians of this caliber. Robert Wyatt's drumming in particular makes this possible playing the most complex almost web like patters that give the music an ethereal quality. After hearing this record I was amased to find that Robert Wyatt was not to keen of playing such complex music. Its a shame because he is a stellar drummer.
