Review by Darren Kerr

45-second excerpt from "The Sensuous X" (various formats)

File this under 'lo-fi meander with weird organ.' I really don't know what to make of it. Morrisey jams with Ray Manzarek at the Neutral Milk Hotel?? When I first played this tape I hated it. Now, though, after listening repeatedly to it, I don't hate it; I don't much like it, but it doesn't make me cringe. The guitarist has some good bits, and the keyboardist captures that "Light My Fire" feel, but overall this is wholly unsatisfying. Maybe I should've gotten stoned before I pushed 'play.'
