here's what the fucking music critics are saying about this cataclismic new package:



NEW YORK TIMES:
"Nothing!" FIVESTARS

BILLBOARD:
"Almost something!" FOURSTARS

NME:
"Nearly everything!" TWOSTARS






Nat Hentoff in DOWNBEAT:
"Kramer is so appetizing here. His whirly-bird affectations remain unfettered, the production sheen is of the ages, practically ethereal. Moore's hillbilly antics take each track WAY over the edge, WAY too far. Listeners with a penchant for oddball modernism will definitely be taken aback with the breadth of this duo's experimental arsenal."


Oedipus in BOSTON STRANGLER:
"I've never heard anything like this in my life!"


Ira Robbins in TIME OUT NEW YORK:
"Speechless. No comment. Go away."


Robert Gordon in MEMPHIS STAR:
"Classic bombast. Will pull coin."


Dr. Demento in DETROIT FREE PRESS:
"The greatest album of all time, notwithstanding."


John Peel in SOUNDS:
"The new Sgt. Pepper? Maybe. The next Seals and Crofts? Bingo!"


Ralph Gleason in LOS ANGELES TIMES:
"Look out! Believe it, my peeps: many decades later, pop HAS finally delivered its Next Big Thing! This 'boyband' unleashes a virtual history of music as never imagined possible. This sucker rocks and flows and blasts and nudges and stutters and stops, and then begins again! Can you see me smiling?"


Kurt Loder in MTV ONLINE:
"No way. Pinch me."


Peter Guaralnick in ROLLING STONE:
"Get outta their way!! Run for your lives!!!"


Robert Palmer in VILLAGE VOICE:
R. Stevie tops the poll winners and Kramer pops the toll sinners...no question, this mock-opera takes the cake. It goes everywhere, making stops in places you didn't ask to be taken. Arguably iffy, then unanimously spiffy. Deeply rooted in genre-bending decategorization; if you're closed minded, beware! How do these gentlemen make these sounds? Please, somebody explain... Can I check your hat and quote?"


Lisa Robinson in CIRCUS:
"Pretty strong content. A++"


Harold DeMuir in PULSE:
"Sometimes it hurts. But it goes away."


Willard Scott in FARMER'S ALMANAC:
"Mediocrity nowhere to be found"


etc etc etc etc etc.....
