AllMusic Review by

New York's favorite avant-garde pranksters, No-Neck Blues Band, began their life as practitioners of a take-no-prisoners sonic assault, but this 1998 recording provided a crucial turning point for the group. Embracing the hippies-frolicking-in-the-field aspect of their free-form approach to music, No-Neck took a more organic turn with this album, creating a welcoming, acoustic-oriented sound full of freewheeling flutes and will-o-the-wisp acoustic guitars; imagine what the Incredible String Band might sound like if they left their set list back at the hash bar.
