I don't get it. What is here to acclaim? The labored teen blues from a dusty garage crammed with wheelchairs? The duo's boy-meets-girl lyrics sometimes is as banal as the trite phrase "Let's fly to the sky" in every second trance anthem. Although the swampy sound does create the stifling atmosphere in the room, as if your speakers are choking, because they're stuffed with Louisiana dirt and water plants. I wonder whether the rubber list "1001 albums" is ever going to burst like a soap bubble. I assure you that you can die safely never hearing this album. The Grammy awarded cover was rather difficult to find in the superb quality. I was able to do it only by obtaining an Australian IP.
