An intriguing attempt to capture a section of the Residents' Wormwood tour without actually recording live shows. Instead, they set up in a Berlin studio and recorded the live arrangements, aiming to get each song in a single take, later adding some overdubs. The result is typically quirky, having a mix of rawness and polish that makes it quite appealing to listen to, even with the bite that comes as part of any work by the Residents. Whether or not the album is appealing to those who own Wormwood is another matter.
