While it is, of course, a immersive and surreal experience of a album, mixing genres into one beautiful mess, that can´t be described with words, it´s also beyond repetitive and has a almost generic sound to it. Still, a nice listen, me likey.

There are very few albums that immerse the audience in a setting and context as perfectly as this one does. Everything about it is simply perfect and stunning.

An album that took me a while to adjust to Magnum's voice and the low fidelity of the album, but once it clicked, it quickly grew to become one of my favorite albums.

Favorite Song: Holland, 1945

Upon first listen to this album, I was slightly shocked. I had seen the album cover before in record shops and was intrigued as to what an album with a weirdly nazi looking postcard as the cover created so much buzz. Like all of the albums on my list, I first listened to this a long time after its initial release so I only have my own personal perception of the album as well as all the publications and online reviews that have given it such a high score. It wasn't what I imagined it to be at all, all these weird instruments and haunting vocals that are so full of passion and sadness. Sometimes I relate the vocals the tracks such as 'two-headed boy' and 'king of carrot flowers pt 2' to a plea; a passionate cry for help. What happens when you mix bagpipes, acoustic guitar, trombone, an assortment of horns, an accordion, a singing saw and a Zanzithophone? Total controlled chaos. For me, this album is the most cathartic album ever made. An example of this is with the song 'two-headed boy', as the aggressive guitar strumming mixes with the passionate shouting of Mangum's vocals. Another aspect as to why I love this album so much is the amount of Surreal tokens within the lyrics. I was studying Surreal art just as I was starting to listen to this album, so it was fresh in my mind as I started to take notice of the lyrics. References to war, dualities, Freudian symbols, juxtapositional imagery and most prominently: dreamscapes. Have you ever had a dream where your life is so much more melodramatic and beautiful than your reality? I think Jeff Mangum has. A salute to Surrealism that has the charm of a homemade Lo-Fi garage record without the overly off-kilter discontinuity and patternlessness of Trout Mask Replica. An album full of passion and imagination, one could study its contents endlessly.

This album is somehow both abrasive and beautiful at the same time. I understand why some won't like this, but I suggest giving it at least a few listens.

This is either the most pretentious album ever made or the least.

I love the surreal lyrics and unusual instrumentation on this album that plays allot on being quirky and weird. There are also some really good folk songs on here. It's interesting to see how divided music fans are about this album. You usually love it or hate it. But in my opinion at least, this is one of the best albums ever made.
