    it's odd, I'l give you that. And horrendously difficult to listen to at the best of times, and sometimes, in the nicest way possible, a little humorous, for the odd and random lyrics and... um, noises, particularly on track 2. And alot of the tracks on this album go on a little too long than they should really, but I am not counting out that at times, Bisch Bosch can be an entertainingit's odd, I'l give you that.

But Bisch Bosch is unfortunately a bit of an unnecessary album. Expand

    How anyone outside the walls of a mental asylum could genuinely enjoy the annoyingly repetitive industrial drum-throbs, aimless experimento-guitar crunches and lyrics about "reeking gonads" that characterise songs called things like 'Epizootics!' is beyond me.

    Bish Bosch is as much about challenging the people that absorbed and accepted Tilt and The Drift as it is challenging the rest of the world--and while that makes it consistent with all his work since Nite Flights, each subsequent album giving his fan base another hurdle to overcome, it also gives it a thrill that's unique to both his discography and the majority of the music you could compare it to. If, indeed, there is any.

    Bish Bosch is a wilder, more scattered (and scatty, in the case of Epizootics!, ten minutes of sax-driven jazz which could almost be seen as accessible, if it wasn't so dark and threatening) work than its immediate predecessors.
