Here and elsewhere, Matthew Seligman's bass is a welcome addition - throughout the album his work is lavish, growling, popping through octaves, funk-a-fied and twinkling with harmonics.

The Flat Earth" lyrics. The Earth can be any shape you want it Any shape at all Dark and cold or bright and warm Long or thin or small But it's home and all I ever had And maybe why for me the Earth is flat. Friends have often asked me why I'm sensitive about my height I would look around and say Hmm, I thought I was immune All my life I have waited To be given any word It was screaming to be heard. album: "The Flat Earth" (1984).
