"Let's start with side 2 - The Further Adventures of Nick Danger. This is how I taught my children about radio theatre. You can follow the story as is, you can notice the radio theatre jokes, the inside Firesign Theatre jokes including the other side of a phone conversation which appears on another album, or do all at once. You'll hear more each time you listen. Side 1 (the "title track" so to speak) uses multi-tracking in a way that makes "Sgt. Pepper's" seem simple by comparison. The references fly fast and furious, from a parody of a then-famous LA car dealer, to James Joyce, to Zeno's Paradoxes. It's OK if some of it goes over your head, or too fast to hear the first time. Otherwise, why would you listen again? A warning: this is not background music. Parts of it can become really annoying if you try to do something else while listening. You can also get lost, as the protagonist does, if you miss some of the transitions. It is meant to require your full attention and both ears, as well as the space between them."

"This FT album (I just dated myself) is, in my experience, the best of the incredible body of work these guys have produced over the years. "Head 'em Off at the Past" alone is worth the price of admission.
On the other hand, I played it for an ex-girlfriend once and she didn't think it was funny. I'm not saying that's the reason we broke up; I only mention it because it's apparently possible, for some, to not enjoy this.
But if you don't I'm gonna have to rethink our relationship."
