Okay... that was... interesting. After hearing how amazing this album is meant to be, I went out, picked it up, and sat through all 28 tracks. And, well, I don't think I should pass judgement until I have some of what those who raved about it have had. It seems to be more of a spoken world album to me than anything else... poetry recited over an, erm, chaotic backing. I suppose what I want to know is all of Beefheart's stuff like this?
