3 stars I can't say that I'm one of those people who enjoys Robrt Wyatt's singing. In fact, most of the time I find his airy voice annoying. But after the drab O Caroline, I kind of like this album. I will admit that I have to be in the right mood to listen to Wyatt on Instant Pussy, where he is supposedly imitating a female orgasm. Yah, sure. And the self referential lyrics in Signed Curtain are cute (but King Crimson did it funnier on Happy With What You Have To Be Happy With).

But the album takes off with Part Of The Dance, which turns into a great jazzy rock song, which continues with Instant Kitten. After that, the album devolves into spacy, trippy noise jams, that actually work if you're in the right frame of mind.

Evolver | 3/5 |
