Their brainfrying new record. "Winchester Cathedral" is Clinic's third album, and overall the sound is more natural and deliberately less polished than "Walking With Thee." Filled with extremes of bubblegum weirdness, harmonium, fuzz, pianola, and an effects-driven hint of Professor Longhair, the album has an overall deranged party feel, broken up by several mellow Bread freakouts. The songs started with skewed folk beginnings then took a turn into something bordering on the indescribable. Comparisons have ranged from Faust, to Madonna, to The Impressions. Suffice to say, there is plenty of echo, reverb, distortion, and dementia (and a few of their best pop songs to date).
