I'd give this a 5/10 (I do 10-scale, not 5-scale). I agree that it's overly long. I guess I sort of like the idea of this record more than its outcome. I mean, the combo of the trio is so great. But there's only a handful of great songs. I really like "Olive's Horn" and I think "What Do You Want (Kim)" is awesome (the scream makes me jump every time. But though a lot of the album is aimless, it does seem to grow on me Very Very slowly over each year.

INHERIT on the other hand is a total piece of shit.

I did really love olive's horn, and you are right on about the idea of the album, it seemed like they didn't have a whole lot of really good ideas when they made this.. its kind of a wasted oppportunity

3.5/5
I might be being generous, and it probably helps that i listened to it in two settings, but I found it pretty enjoyable.
