Yes, it's on Alan Licht's top ten minimal albums of all time. That's probably grounds for many of you to pick this up. Though you young'uns probably don't even know who Alan Licht is anyways (read here). Okay, so if yer young and need a hipster name to attach to this, Arthur Russell is involved and he's cool now, so there you go. But really, why discuss other people when Lauten is so great. Don't be scared off by the Opera title. This is true bliss.
