I'm 8 listens in and so far, not as good as Splaszh. But...I sense it's a special album, and a fine one, yet I'm not connecting with it 100 percent yet. This is sometimes a good thing - albums that take a while to reveal their treasures are usually the ones that last longer.
...Sometimes is an absolute classic, and the brief instrumental is just that, an interlude. Far from being flaws these 2 tracks just cement what is unquestionably a classic album.
while Autechre and Aphex (rightly) get all the attention, I shan't forget rolling around on a post-acid and E comedown to Still Fighting from the Sabres debut...oh yes...
