This solo effort from the Pere Ubu frontman is about as off-kilter and compelling as fans of the band might expect from this unique character. Like a radio picking up several stations at once, this "first act" of a cosmic rock opera weaves the recitation of impressionistic poetry with twanging, ethereal instrumentation. The disc is also notable for featuring a rare (and lovely) vocal performance by Linda Thompson.
