Wonderful stuff, really excellent, eclectic yet coherent and full of character

4.0 excellentVirium | June 28th 12

I don't seem to like this as much as many Cardiacs fans for some reason. This is them at their closest to progressive rock, with punky tempos and beats as a rarity and the general energy level, noisiness, and pop structure all a bit toned down as compared to other releases. Even the previous production issues are largely gone. It's still Cardiacs and still sounds like them, though. Oh, and it also contains versions of many of their most well-known songs (e.g. "R.E.S." and their biggest commercial success, "Is This the Life?") which is probably one of the reasons why so many fans love it so much. Anyway, I will admit there are some real gems and great moments on here, for example I'm quite partial to "Whole World Window" and "Victory Egg".

Cardiacs at their most accessible, yet enough craziness here to pleasure and even dumbfound the snobbiest of jazz/prog heads! Absolutely solid production and quirky yet very catchy melodies with a punky up tempo edge. Fantastic stuff!

this is so much fun to listen to especially the middle of this album. Very playful and bouncy. Dive, The Icing on the world are fantastic
