Composing his music to be played by amateur musicians, Tori Kudo, the enigmatic conductor of Maher Shalal Hash Baz, has been called "The Master of Mistake". on this release, he's a wickedly inspired bandleader, presenting a tight package of 27 songs both fierce and fragile. Barely held together by the threads, these songs seem just a note away from falling apart completely. The effect is at turns serene, dissonant, enchanting, rockin', and intensively catchy. For longtime fans who've tracked the group over their many years and mutations, this record is an essential follow-up to "Faux Depart", and is also an excellent starting point for those unfamiliar with the long history and naive genius of Tori Kudo's Maher Shalal Hash Baz.
