  • Summary: This is the second solo release for English singer-songwriter Gordon Anderson, who was a member of the original Beta Band lineup (and author of several of their hits including "Dry The Rain"). He tends to get labeled an "eccentric" by the music press, with frequent Syd Barrett comparisons.

    Not since Cornelius' Fantasma has the element of surprise manifested itself as fully as on this record. [#9, p.110]
  2. Lone Pigeon shows remarkable variation in both composition and songwriting on Schoozzzmmii.
  3. Dark and compelling. [May 2004, p.104]
  4. 80
    Despite its DIY origins and almost hallucinatory feel, this is a peach of a pop record. [Apr 2004, p.108]
  5. 75
    This stuff may be lo-fi, but in Anderson's case, the hissy fits. [Jul 2004, p.112]
  6. A charming, if often bewildering, set of psychedelic junk-folk ditties.
  7. 40
    A scrapbook of tuneful, scattershot fragments. [Mar 2004, p.97]

    A beautiful album - but not quite as complete as his first, 'Concubine Rice'.
