This album is a bit disjointed and confusing, and is ,hopefully,supposed to compound the metaphor of the box bringing chaos and confusion.
It features only Jandek's shakey voice and his randomly plucked and strummed detuned acoustic guitar,fed through a short delay effect. It's all weirdly direction-less and out of sorts,even a little alarming. Jandek sounds confused and uncertain and that's directly expressed in the music, which wanders disorientatingly, full of tangents, fragments, and false starts.Almost catatonically mopey and meandering; it's not like BlueCorpse, which is a record about emotional devastation with some perspective on it, not totally from inside an open wound.
Another strange beast in the vast Jandek canon.
