5 stars An underrated gem of avant-garde and the Cardiacs discography. It's undeniably a masterpiece, and a follow-up to the masterful A Little Man And A House And The Whole World Window which defined their signature pompous sound. The album features the classic line-up which included Tim Smith's saxophonist sister Sarah Smith, so you'll hear a much more prominent saxophone than in albums like Heaven Born And Ever Bright and Sing To God.

Standouts would be The Duck And Roger The Horse, Arnald, Mare's Nest, Stench Of Honey and one of their best tracks to date, Buds And Spawn. One of my favorite Cardiacs albums, five stars.
