Here is where the fellas go in and cash up, getting a lush round sound out of the whole kit. Actual drums (from Mani Neumeier of Guru Guru)! Actual bass (mostly Rother)! It sounded like the gang was going for the big time, rather than breaking up entirely, which is what they did. This album is beautiful and goofy and loose and tight and even gets into what Julian Cope calls their “Charlie Brown” material, where the sweetness and light is perhaps too intense. Moomin or doomin’, there are those dudes.
