Safe as Milk, Stricly Personal and Mirror Man are better albums. This is slightly bland.

An absolute masterpiece, though I don't get why people find it to be so challenging. It has a bit of filler, but aside from that, I wouldn't mind going dancing to a girl to this. That'd be baos.

Also, my band Charlie N. George's main influence is this album.

Forced myself to listen to this one one time. Yes, forced. I was game before playing track one...but with each passing track it became more and more difficult to classify the album as music as opposed to a loose collection of noise.

I could hear elements in it that I knew inspired various musicians down the road...but the album itself is horrid.

Rolling Eyes

The album that tries to be different for the sake of being different. It's a bad album, because it tries to be.

Actually, that's not completely true. The album is basically two sets of songs playing at the same time:
*Free jazz Ones
*Delta Blues Ones

In and of themselves, these are pretty ordinary. But when put together, you get one of the greatest albums of all time.

Proto Scaruffi shit, I like it. Also Applerill needs to understand quirky and poorly done as possible ≠ avant-garde. Might I suggest looking into music theory classes?
