It is a massive album!
His work on albums like A Little Man and a House and the Whole World Window is great, awesome band full of so many talented musicians past and present!
Yes, incredible band, and Tim Smith is a genius.
This was my introduction to Cardiacs at a friend's house around 1989-ish:https://www.youtube.com/v/A5qrlOOPwZ8
When his wife said, "oh god, you're not going to play him that bloody Cardiacs video are you?" I knew I was in for something different. After the five minutes of insanity that is The Consultant's Flower Garden
I was wondering what the hell I was watching. Then the songs started and it just got stranger and stranger. I wasn't sure what to make of it at first, but I knew there was something really interesting there, and I was soon going back for more. How bitterly ironic that they've probably been more popular since Tim was taken ill than they were when they were still a functioning band.
