I first listened to this album when I was 12 years old after watching Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders, because they were part of the soundtrack. I became so obsessed with this album I think I might have listened to it a hundred times. And it amazes me how every time, it still surprises me.

One of the greatest prog/post-punk albums ever recorded, with texture and invention to spare. Dark, visual, unusual and masterfully executed. An immaculate and underrated tour de force. A psychedelic masterpiece. Difficult music indeed, for people who appreciate a challenging listen over spoon-fed regurgitated sameness.
