4 stars This is an inconsistent album. Fortunately, we're talking inconsistent where the range is 3-5 star songs, rather than something like 1-3. A Visit to Newport Hospital is worth four, it's a strong album opener. Contrasong is an easy five and I wish it was longer. The second Boilk (as opposed to one on their debut) is worth a three because it has too many unmelodic parts. Long Piece #3, which comprises the entire second side, is mostly a four. It has similar problems to Boilk at points (like during the early section of part two), but overall is strong. This inconsistent album is a very good one. Not amazing, not just good, but very good. Thus, four stars.
