A great mix of poetic lyricism and elite musicianship. The drumming on this album is just off the charts.

From Listmeister 07/22/2013 20:05
A bunch of random lyrics weaved into one amazing 42 minute song. Lyrics like "We'll have Superman for president, and let Robin save the day" or "Make a man of him / put him on a train / teach him to play Monopoly / and how to sing in the rain" or "Your new shoes are worn at the heels / and you make all your animal deals / and your wise men don't know how it feels / to be thick as a brick." All of that (and much more) is in one song.
