Prog Reviewer
5 stars This is an album that you'll never find ever again, even from the same band. The magic in this album can only be created and matched once, and this certainly is not for your average proghead. With that in mind, this album still deserves absolute masterpiece status as it is a very unique, accomplished work of art giving a bizarre yet intriguing insight into a whole other world. Doing a track by track analysis on this album would seem incredibly unfitting, as the album really flows as one piece.

This is definitely a case of you have to hear it and I often find this as one of the hardest albums ever to try to describe to anyone. The extremely odd chanting vocals, sound effects (wind, water, others), guitar noodling and occasional odd percussion set this up as one of the most accomplished and unique albums ever to be recorded.

In contrast to other Residents' albums which actually feature SOME recognizable form of music, though very twisted, to some people this may come across as a non-musical piece in the conventional sense. That much is true, but if you're really looking to hear something that will give you a completely new perspective on music and a journey that you will never forget, you must pick this up.

A masterpiece of music. Just be warned: This is not for the faint of heart.
