"A way of conveying the 'inside' conversation we think - through music and lyrics. The honesty of two girls projecting these thoughts to the sound of piano, bass, guitar, and drums." - from liner notes.

This is the one that started it all. After years of collecting rock, punk, industrial, jazz, and other "cool" music, I stepped in to the record store that fateful day, thumbed thru the dollar bin looking for cheap psych, and there it was. Vaguely trippy cover art showing 2 groovy chicks locked in lesbian eye-embrace with a greasy-haired schlump staring menacingly in the background. The song titles seemed weird and intriguing. Doctor Man ? Yesterday the Dog ?!? I paid my 99 cents, took it home, and found it wasn't "rock", but a swinging 60's hybrid of jazzy pop swankadelia with bizarre psychotherapy-inspired lyrics. A masterpiece of incredibly strange music.

Though mentioned on a handful of websites, the only real analysis was found on a site from Japan, which we quote in full (translation via Babelfish):
The 1st album of the Inner Dialogue which this time becomes recurrence, title as for the Inner Dialogue from the ranwood of 69 year loss * ?????? release those which are done. As for member 6. Has taken charge of composition, arrangement and the piano which are center the Gene Dinovi at the time 16 with the band of the Dizzy Gillespie to coact with the Art Tatum and the Billy Holiday, after that the person who handles the work of many jazz * musicians. After that way to seventies beginnings manage many movie music and the music of the TV in Hollywood and the ? are, as for this album the pattern which relates to production the time. By the way now in the medium ??? of the work the liner by main person of him is written. As for main * vocal 2 women. As for the 1 human B.J. Word the ???? of Holland and release is done the beach * ???? et cetera which was recorded from the catfish the album where popularity that person. And backing * member 3. Writing the lyric being something by the person outside, all Tony Velona, has placed the strange lyric exquisitely. Now, " the I go to life " of beginning of the work riding the light rhythm, the good number where harmony of the twin * vocal is perfectly clear. The California * ????? whose rhythm * change to the waltz is beautiful also famous musical work " Within You " attracts the attention. It is the ending and it solves in the ? coming and the arrangement which throws becomes, hearing that way directly, greatly. When in tune the rhythm as for the pattern which is changed to the waltz and strange rhythm it is many even with other tune, it is one of his and the like major feature, simultaneously, this album high sense it is the cause which has been made the thing. " Docter Man " how truth of 10 numbers it keeps changing bewilderingly and, it counts and as many as 8 numbers " IN Sequence " which become song are funny, is. In addition, fork * number " The Touch " of classical melody (3 numbers), the " Look At Me " (9 numbers) and it withstood the atmosphere like free * design, the " Yesterday The Dogs " (4 numbers), truly cool. The piano of the kind timbre is refreshing, the " Little Bits Of Paper " (5 numbers) the paragon. It continues, 1 tune of the happiness where the " Little Children " (6 numbers) it is and the hatchet is and the ?? of the rhythm and the melancholic piano the loop it does. And, 12 numbers also " Now You See It of the rust, the Now You Didn't " the California * ????? is 1 tune. No tune only the famous musical work where talent of composition and arrangement of the Gene Dinovi shines. In any case splendid all the 12 tunes. Not only the software * lock * fan, all the music fans necessary the masterpiece of listening, it is worldwide first CD conversion. How, not to overlook!
How, not to overlook, indeed...
