“Coherent Incoherence” should be the name of this LP. Striking drone rock collides with spacy atmospherics that has its fingerprints all over noise-rock, punk, even Industrial and metal. This is Guru Guru’s star shining brightest, the culmination of their vision. 4 incoherent jams offer the listener a coherent musical statement that is as influential as any album of its day. Artists as diverse as Thurston Moore, Richard Hell, and Don Byron cite Kanguru as a major influence in shaping their early sound.

Listening with headphones enhances the sonic glory this record provides. A real trip – sit back and enjoy the experience.     +++++ out of +++++
