You know what REALLY gets on my goddamned nerves? When records don't tell you which side is A and which side is B and I have to turn on the overhead light and tilt the record at just the right angle to see the etching from the pressing plant. Fuck that shit, and it seems like every other record has that same problem of not telling me what's what. This is one of those situations where practicality > art. Anyway, this solo record is way better than Pyramid Electric Co. The songs sound more fully realized rather than rambling stream-of-consciousness jargon. This one is ghostlier than the last, and interestingly “Get Out Get Out Get Out” and the title track are the clear standouts.
