Cartoon - Music From The Left Field (1983)

With an added violinist and woodwind player this second release by "Cartoon" differs somewhat to there previous.

A step on progressive wise with a greater pallette of sounds including ambient/ weird soundscape interludes blended with the more esoteric RIO and avant complexities.

We still however get to hear the "Universs Zero" type of sound with some humurous moments too ( The Twilight Zone theme? ). Check out "Scherzo" for some bizzarely funny berserk strangeitude.

Great album and there's more than a nod to some "Art Zoyd".

In it's way this is almost as good as there first album!
