Staff review by

"The 1974 edition of the Guiness Book of World Records included a brief entry on the Sleepytime Gorilla Museum as the :World's most closed public institution:" naming your band after a Dada museum will make people notice you for sure, at least the artsy people that is. Sleepytime Gorilla Museum is already a big name in the rock scene, their album "Of Natural History" was their big step...but what about their debut? "Grand Opening And Closing" is one of the most interesting pieces in avant-garde music, of course it's almost impossible to get nowadyas.
