Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2008-07-09 
Very odd blend of spoken word and lo-fi, shall we say, “D.I.Y. prog rock”? Often interesting sometimes random and surreal and silly. In the realm of later-era Zappa and a little Negativland at their most spontaneous & silly.

(1) Some kid talking to their mom about recording. Lame.
((((2)))) Loose, jazzy improvy, prog. Gets better as it moves along.
(((3))) Zappa-ish synclavier/synth bits, bass and “clap beats”.
((((4)))) Rumbly, rhythmic and jazzy fusion.
(((5))) Sparse, jam and a bunch of conversational spoken word snippets.
((6)) Spotty classic rock vs. “free noise rock” jam. Kinda lame.
(((7))) Except of a funny short story about the cow in the album & weird, fake commercial.
(((8))) Another story mixed with jazzy jams. Sort of amusing.
((((10)))) Loose, funky jazzy jam. Would be a hit amongst stoned college students but actually good for what it is.
((((11)))) Slow and steady build up with a prog-rock/lo-fi jazz fusion base.
((((12)))) Etheral, choral, very airy, voice sound just like the title. Nice.
((13)) Huh? Feedback, spontanenous drums and some lady talking about pills & cigs.
((14)) Minimal guitar chords & noodling.
(15) Some guy calling his dog and the dog talking back.
(((16))) Basement jam, with a god bass sound. Guitars are just OK but the bass playing takes the cake.
((17)) More Pookie Chow ads, more 80’s Zappa-ish, electronic silliness that goes nowhere.
((18)) Disjointed guitar/drums hippy fusion-y jazzy sounds that are too close to the ‘Dead for comfort.
((19)) Really long “discount prog” jams going in a bunch of different directions but rarely landing a good place.
(20) Really lame skit about a guy that needs to go to the loo. (FCC “shit” said once)
