Listening to the transcendent "Chartered Trips" after an absence of over a decade detonated a little bomb in my chest--not just nostalgia, but love, sadness, and pure musical goodness.
The rest of the album follows suit--bursts of perfect formless sound and emotion. It's a "hardcore" album the way, say, Astral Weeks is a "folk" album--i.e. only as a starting point that vanishes after take-off.
