A gimmick in every collection:

Beside the exceptional shape of this cover the artwork is a little 'spacy'. Blue sky, horse shaped dark clouds, a flying milk box and a disguise with glasses fixed at a paperboard nose with a mustache. A fine evidence of a promotional gimmick as well as a nice kind of design art.

Poems recitative with spacy rock sound and brilliant lyrics. An unsparing objective reproduction of our society.
