If you're a fan of Reptile House, Lungfish, or the Pupils--all of which are/were Daniel Higgs-fronted bands--be advised that this album is NOTHING like those bands. Or any band, really. Daniel Higgs is a...unique individual, and he writes a great deal of poetry on top of writing and composing music. This album is a collection of Higgs's poems set to the background of Twig Harper's electronic music/soundscapes. To say this album is "weird" would be an understatement, but, if you can get past its weirdness, it has charm. In this way, it's similar to Higgs's 2010 solo release, 'Say God', though the background music is vastly different (in 'Say God', Higgs himself and with the assistance of fellow Lungfish bandmate Asa Osborne performs the music that accompanies his poetry). This album, though, is not for the casual music listener whatsoever; if you think bands like Sonic Youth are nothing but noise, don't bother sampling these songs. However, if you're looking to broaden your sonic palette, then by all means check this record out. It may even blow your mind!
