2 x vinyl LP. Side four contains no music and has a poem etched into its surface.
Comicopera is arranged into three acts, loosely based on the Ancient Greek idea of the ‘Comedy’. As a result of Wyatt’s desire to make the album sound as if it is being played by a group of friends in a room, the songs appear lighter, less dense and as fun as always. Musicians include Brian Eno, Paul Weller and Phil Manzanera.
