3rd highest rated... 9th highest ranked... same era as the 2 highest ranked which are also the 2 highest rated.... hmmm.... explanation: if you have a fall record in your charts it's either hex enduction or this nation's saving grace, and there just isn't enough room for more records by the fall. or isn't that the explanation?

Great album, quite a softer and more melodic approach than anything previous the Fall had done at this point.

Looking at the track listing now, I think it makes for a better collection with the various b-sides like No Bulbs and Draygo's Guilt included. Still, for me, the best two tracks are Disney's Dream Debased and Lay Of The Land.
