From Cojo7
Great album all the way through. I'm not usually a fan of really artsy experimental stuff, but this is just amazing. I really enjoy the lyrics, anti-consumerist political commentary without being overbearing. Everything on here sounds interesting and enjoyable while still pushing boundaries. Even without considering its notable influence on other alternative bands, this album is an absolute classic.

From Mr.Music
One of the most haunting rock albums ever recorded. Absolutely different that the post punk scene was creating at that time. Experimental, beautiful and gives u a lot to think about. Makeshift Swahili must be one of the best rock songs ive ever heared.
