Information/Write-up

Wiseman's first solo effort (prior to leaving Blue Rodeo) features fourteen of the more than two hundred collaborations between the keyboardist and "poet, traveller, activist, and philosopher" Wrench Tuttle. Wiseman's quirky music accompanying Tuttle's oddball poetry works mostly as an experiment, and one that wears unfortunately thin after the novelty has worn off. When it works best ("Airplane on the Highway", "Cockroach", "all the trees"), the loosely jazzy tunes underscore the unstable tension throughout the lyrics. A very interesting precursor to Wiseman's later collaboration with Bruce McCulloch.

According to Chart Magazine, is one of the top 100 Canadian albums of all time (#88)
