    Meaning falls by the wayside in favor of mood and atmosphere, ethereal and dreamlike as the album sounds like the soundtrack to a Zazen mediation session or some New Age trip-out.

    Ignore the arch titles and you'll find some lovely psych pastiches. [Jun 2012, p.69]

Like his idols Lou Reed andThis album explores the path further which BJM has taken since My Bloody Underground and Who Killed Sgt. Pepper. Like his idols Lou Reed and David Bowie Anton Newcombe searched for inspiration in Berlin and judging by the outcome this has worked well for him. A good mix of 60's eastern influenced songs, krautrock and shoegaze are found on this album. Highlights on this album for me are Viholliseni Maalla with a young Finnish singer, I Want To Hold Your Other Hand and The Clouds Are Lies. Full Review »

    Some of BJM's best ever work. Everybody should own this album, on vinyl preferably, but choose your own weapon.
