I like to listen to this album because it makes me feel normal. It sounds like a mental hospital and it's all over the place. There are French 70's type funk grooves, very avant-garde orchestral interludes, funny bleeping synthesizers, strange sound effects, people saying things in reverse, a blaring trombone, Stone Age grunts, and a few bits of Black Sabbath style goth rock. Who in their right mind would come up with the idea of combining a distorted loop of a screaming horse with castanets and harpsichord? It's lovely! If "The Faust Tapes" was a kid's playground on LSD, this is aural hell on earth with Igor being the Lord of the Underworld and he's whipping you into submission. All in a good way of course. I really like it but try to avoid listening to it every day as I'm afraid my brain will melt. It's cinematic, spooky and fun. It also comes in a extremely nice sleeve. Fauni Gena did a very good job on this. I raise my imaginary hat to them.
