The funky, wordy feel and variety of the tracks was unexpected, but the quirk and bent of it all was Blegvad. Perhaps to much reminiscent of structures and mechanisms of PB's earlier work, I was initially underwhelm on my first couple of unfocused run-throughs of the CD.

Why has it been in constant play then?

Intriguing imagery, fantastic music and production, and perhaps a meaner PB: On "What A Car You Are", I hear accusatory venom that reminded me of Diamanda Galas. There are other instances of poetic passive aggressiveness to be enjoyed too, all with a harder edge than I could have expected. But I like it.

A delicate recoding that belies the spines that support its placid surface. PB & AP work very well together. If only there were more :O

Well, one has to be into Peter Blegvad to begin with; his work is uncompromisingly unique and diverse and while I don't really dig some of it, this one's a treat!

Unlike "Orpheus - The Lowdown", Blegvad's previous collaboration with Partridge, this one is more song-oriented than spoken words. Partridge adds a sonic range which was otherwise missing in other Blegvad albums, such as "Just Woke Up" or "Hangman's Hill", surrounding Blegvad's laconic delivery with a fresh light. The result is artistic, a little challenging at times, while otherwise catchy and approachable - pure intellectual fun.

Almost like Ridgway in places, but retains that XTC originality!!! I found this to be a good CD and it is good to hear Andy Partridge again!!!

I was hoping for better. More Andy less Blegvard would have been preferred. That said, it's better than other Andy collaborations.
