"...probably, although I'll welcome arguments favoring "Beautiful Bend" and "Evita." Of Boris Midney's druggy soundscapes for the disco round, this may be his only album that must be heard to be believed, let alone appreciated! Beyond his usual rococco string crescendos and cooing disco chorines, this album better makes better use than any other of BM's secret weapon -- silence. After building for several minutes, towering arrangements abruptly vanish...and off we segue into the next theme, which may or may not explain why. Mysterious! Side One's "Come Into My Heart/Good Lovin'" was Boris' biggest hit (a 45 rpm version actually nicked the Top 40 during the peak of Disco Madness, amazing given its nearly eight-minute length, the fact that it was a pretty crummy edit, and the overall weirdness of this material). So what does it sound like? Just imagine: you're late for that connecting flight at Heathrow, you see, and you've forgotten your Thorazine (...every DAMN PILL!) Being rhythmically blessed yet none too tightly wrapped, you proceed to... OK -words may fail me, but the music doesn't - especially the climax of side one, as grand and successful as any disco record ever cut. Side 2, "Love's Comin'/Baby Love" is a cleverly arranged, weirdo riff on early 60's girl-group na-na. Somehow, a synthesized harpsichord succssfully finds its way into the mix. As Boris saw the disco floor the way Salvador Dali saw canvas, the result is delightful - and slightly disturbing."
