I know it is a bonus track or whatever, but I wish Car Wash Hair was listed. It is one of the best songs on the album!

This is, as far as I know, pretty unique music. Very psychedelic mix of melody and noise.
There are some genius moments on here. However at other times I wonder why I am listening. Probably a bit too much of 'noise' for me all the way through. But then again, sometimes this album really amazes me.

Favorite tracks: Car wash hair (Hidden/Bonus track), Frittering

It's good. If it would have ended at Frittering, it would have been great. Very Sleepy River, was very f**king long, and not really any tonal shifts to keep it interesting. I don't know if Car Wash Hair is considered it's own track, but if so, it'd be one of my favorites on the album.

Favorite Tracks: Syringe Mouth, Frittering, Car Wash Hair

My favorite Mercury Rev album. It's not as poppy as Deserter's Songs and honestly, the guitar work is just breathtaking considering this came out in the same year as Loveless.

Same band, different sounds...If you are coming here after listening to "Deserter's Songs", well these are a different set of songs more in the realm of rock than that of pop music, still as good - as long as you are prepared for it and have adjusted your expectations...

Hmmm ... I don't see what I'm missing. A lot of people who really liked this have similar tastes in music as me, but I just can't even vaguely enjoy this. I wanted to find a high moment but ... I can't really think of one. Sorry guys ...

My mind is blown. That is to say, my mental categories of music are going to have to be revised. It's weird and experimental and strange noises and good rock 'n' roll and alternative and artsy and .... I just don't know what to make of it. I can't even give it a rating at this time.

Interesting comments here. So I guess I can go to Scaruffi's page if I want to jazz up my comments. Plagiarism might be preferred to some of the stupid shit I have to say about peoples' records.

Rough and melodic at the same time. If you're a fan of The Flaming Lips earlier albums then you'll probably enjoy this as well as stylistically they both take similar approaches.
