A contentious point Clarkie but the more I think about it, the more i'm inclined to agree. It's pretty well faultless (even counting 'Sons of the silent age' whose Muzak tendencies are overshadowed by some pretty far-out lyrics).

Is is the motorik subtext? Is is the walking bass? Is it the Fripp/Belew guitar union? Is is the weirdly-gated vocal effect? Or those deep, rich synth textures?

It changed my life, musically speaking.
