Even after 10 years I'm still discovering new delights in this masterpiece. It brings on ecstacy every time, from the awesome opener Lay My Love (Eno vocal) with its driving looping beat and enigmatic lyric through the soaring One Word (shared vocal) to the elegant and atmospheric Cordoba. The backing is superb and innovative yet still accessible (think Peter Baumann, Kraftwerk &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; the more melodic Suicide tracks). Crime In The Desert has an almost West Coast feel with decorous harmonies and delectable doo-doo-doo's while The River sounds like classy country music, almost like Jim Reeves! Every track is great: In The Backroom and Empty Frame confirm the artists' lyrical genius while Been There Done That and the catchy but profound Spinning Away are distinguished by Cale's trademark viola. Wrong Way Up is a truly inspired display of excellence. This is much better than Songs For Drella (Reed and Cale) and on a par with the brilliant Last Day On Earth, Cale's collaboration with Bob Neuwirth.
