3 stars A boring album when listened to in a single sitting, but pretty good when chopped up into individual parts. Peter Cook's spoken sections are decidedly dreary and somewhat repetitive, but are quite amusing in that he gets more bladdered throughout. The narrative just seems to go round and round in circles.

I didn't laugh at any part of this album, but found it occasionally riveting in a 'What the hell's gonna happen next' sort of way.

For '77 this is groundbreaking stuff indeed . All sorts of odd experamentalism is used throughout, mainly on the instrumental parts which sound quite strange indeed. State of the art electronics are utilised making it sound far more modern than the year in which it was recorded. This equipment must have cost an arm and a leg back then.

This is an adventure into some weird territory where everything is based on new recording technology which is taken to extremes. Every sound is crystal clear - for example - the section of some guy brushing his teeth.

A pair of headphones are what you need to fully appreciate this - It's undoubtedly an original recording but suffers somewhat from the not so funny Peter Cook spoken parts, but rises from the ashes with some good Godley and Creme polyphonic vocals which sound unlike nobody else.

Dobermensch | 3/5 |
