Frith's most accessible - an all-time favorite
Christopher Farley | Minneapolis, MN USA | 12/12/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Fred Frith takes a stab at low-tech pop music, and he is quite successful. I say "low tech" because it was largely recorded at home, and the synthesizer of choice is the Casio 101. Frith does amazing things with it, his guitar, his guests (including Bill Laswell, Tina Curran & George Cartwright), his voice, his violin, and his homemade instruments. With the possible exception of Step Across the Border (which contains selections from this record), there is no other Fred Frith album like it. The CD bonus track ("True Love") is one of the best things on the record, but it's very hard to pick favorites. This eclectic record is filled with dark humor and trippy sonic textures. If you like Eno's Another Green World, you'll love this one!"
Speechless and gravity are not the only ones!

"This is almost as good as speechless and Gravity, which i consider to be Friths best...guitar solos is good too, though a bit more experimental and less melodic than those mentioned...On this one Fred sings a bit more, but check whats happening behind and also the structure of the songs...original great writting!"
One of my personal all-time favorites

"I love this album. It's not a major album; it's one of those small personal treasures that you stumble across accidentally. It's a gem that I listened into oblivion. :-( If you can get your hands on a copy, treasure it!"
