Absolutely correct on that one.

EDIT: holy crap, Dunwho I swear I hadn't read your post before I posted this. Haha.

Haha nah sure im not surprised... i just was so amazed listening back over it.. was just so solid as an album - perhaps not in the more conventional way - but if you go along for the ride it very quickly starts getting soooo good. Like a good book i guess.

And on the mother Earth thing... i cant say its my favourite clearly, but i would never say it was bad.. not being hard on it, just think its a pity it was at the tail end of such a great fuckin album!

Really? Really really? I've listened to this a grand total of twice, and since then placed it on the shelf to collect dust.
