The start is a bit shaky. The Mary parts save it.

A bit harsh; it's supposed to be jagged and Emil-like. It's in some silly time signature, 10/8 I think.

When they did this live, Tim made Mary play the marimba part at the end on guitar (!!). Naturally, she pulled it off with aplomb.

Sounds like it should be the end of the album (and just as well could have been)

Yeah. Again the record is ending but wait...

The album ends again.

I know what you mean. This is also what I meant when I suggested listening to it in two chunks. Otherwise, you are kinda willing it to end by the time you get to Strobo. Oh wait, there's more?

17. With Friends like these
One of their best B sides. Funny, political and poppy.

Agree totally. I would have liked to have seen this on the album instead of e.g. The Spiracles.
