I Just listened to this for the first time on spotify, having previously only listened to comicopera (which I think's great). I quite enjoyed it, it gets 62 cool points for getting Ivor Cutler a record deal. Pitchfork's review of it is truly awful.
"what's this old codger really all about? Is he punk? Is he prog? Is he psychedelic? And most importantly, is he really cool?"
