I remember reading these words back in the day and not being completely blown away, as I should have been. Firstly, there's no reason the Post should have reviewed this album. Secondly, this is pretty knowledgeable praise for something so intentionally (and outlandishly) strange.
I guess the Post didn't send flowers and belly dancers along with the review was some sort of a slap in the face.
Good shit though. Looking back, it's pretty right on.
