3 stars I want to give this effort by the infamous quartet four stars, but in truth,this sadly can only muster a three star rating. This lp was never one of my favorites,but it is early RESIDENTS and highly experimental,esp.when considering the release date.Comparisons to other groups are useless,since there is only one RESIDENTS. So to be fair we must try to compare this to other RESIDENTS albums,The sound on this one is a bit thin compared to other RESIDENTS releases.The concept(which I am sure is present somewhere) is a bit obtuse,much like the music itself. Bizarre by any standards.But very listenable and enjoyable.The COMMERICAL ALBUM and MARK OF THE MOLE are years away,but the much better THIRD REICH AND ROLL is released this same year.This one is not as good as NOT AVAILABLE,THIRD REICH AND ROLL or ESKIMO.BUT,it does rate better than MARK OF THE MOLE,DISKOMO or THE TUNES OF TWO CITIES.Listen with care!
