"I disagree with marsneptune, who only gave this 2 stars. I think this is a fantastic album...I'd say it sounds exactly like what would happen if Brian Eno and syd Barrett produced a Warren Zevon album, or if Joe Walsh had Pink Floyd backing him: a beautiful blend of folksy simplicity with incredibly tasteful and brilliant production, moving vocals, intelligent lyrics. It's right up there with "Another Green World" in my book, and that's saying a whole heapum lot. This album will definitely appeal to fans of early Roxy Music, Bowie, or rock musicals like Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Rocky Horror, and Velvet Goldmine. An essential document of the times."
Previously Unreleased, probably for legitimate reasons

"Though the musicianship is facile, this album doesn't have the same power to wrap around the brain stem that his other solo albums have. This album just doesn't have the tentacles. Still, it is a valid historical document with an all-star cast. But did A. More really want it released?"
