totally agree about "side chaff" but the sheer quantity of this album is extraordinary, as are about 20 (!) of the individual songs.

Really good. But am I going to listen to it in its entirety again? I am not so sure.

The fact that they have a forty song album where every song is unique and imaginative is just astounding

1st listen: An ambitious, sprawling album, but not enough memorable tunes to be considered amongst the greatest of all time.
2nd listen: I wish I'd discovered this in seventh grade. It's a great album overall, although it's too long and you can see why the fourth side is called "Side Chaff."

what a behemoth. I'm sitting there listening to West Germany and then I realize I'm only like half-way through, though its felt like ages. It just throws so many ideas at you so quickly its impossible to digest it in one sitting

@poppmusic all due respect, you're confusing this with Trout Mask Replica. These are all fully realized songs, no nonsense.
