This debut cassette scrambles my brain. It’s like one of those black- and-white drawings that looks like a wistful old woman wearing a pearl necklace; then, when you return to it, it looks like an eagle soaring over a lake of fire.

The rhythm section reminds me “Duh, there is no right way to look at it.” Now it kinda looks like a young woman in a mirror. Now it looks like a funny cartoon…
