    A friend messaged me today about this record and I hadn’t listened to it for a while. I forgot how wonderfully the first side unfolds. The first hint that something unreal is going to happen comes when Wyatt starts singing in that exploratory falsetto in Sea Song, and the whole side comes to a cathartic conclusion after a slow build. I hope this is new to some of you sonic adventurers. Here’s the whole first side.

    Love that album, his best in my opinion. Both sides are fantastic.
