I recently gave Eskimo another listen and was blown away. It finally makes sense to me. I still don't know what it is, but I like it and I recognise it as a crowning achievement in the art of sound. Eskimo completely left rock music behind. Not just rock, but all Western music, and all African-derived music forms. They also left English behind, and created their own guttural language, which was supposed to sound like Inuit (I guess). They pushed the envelope so far that they burst through it and found themselves in an aural universe completely of their own.
