We don’t really post full albums on either/or any more, but I’m breaking that slightly with today’s post. Mainly because this song is the ENTIRE album: a 43 minute, extremely decadent and somewhat stupid concept album with more flute solos than Ron Burgundy could possibly comprehend.

Despite this, it somehow works! Granted, it’s not for everyone, but despite the song having a fairly consistent style to it, you may not even notice that 40 odd minutes of the same song has gone by, as it rolls around in very distinct stages. I certainly didn’t: in fact, the first time I heard it, I actually wondered if, by accident, I’d skipped a chunk of it. It’s a wild tune that certainly could only have come out of the 70s.
