Well, my reply to this would be there are a few other cues I certainly wouldn't call "50s swing" on the album, like Ichni-Si-San (or whatever it is) "Weird is Good" "Pool lights" "Pygmies" etc. But hey, whatever gets on your nerves gets on your nerves.

Yeah, with a score like Matstick Men you gotta have just the right time/mood to play it and enjoy best. Driving around town I find is a lot of fun.

You didn't make it very clear to me that the first part of the paragraph was only talking about one section of the score. I thought you meant the whole CD...

But whatever Thanks for the reply.
