Rev. Syung Myung Me: This is a brand new remix of an album that was recorded (and sent to Warner Bros. Records) before Meet the Residents was released. (In fact, I think it may predate even "Santa Dog '72".) And this is really, really good. There's enough of the old sound to bring back memories of how cool and noisy and experimental The Residents used to be, but enough of the new sound to make it sound nice and glossy and it's actually.. danceable. It's really cool. I'm not 100% sure if it's essential, but it's damned close. You could definitely do worse than to get this one.
