I didn't plan this heart defect album for Valentine's Day but here we are in that happy coincidence. A local poet once said that love is the sublimest form of stupidity so it's justice that asculations of the heart should provide the soundtrack for the day of love. The heart beats are prefaced with some medical terminology and explanation narrated by either an Englishman or a German speaking English. Which is a perfect tie-in to a quote by Nietzsche that quipped that the only thing more boring than an Englishman is two. That explains this record perfectly. Hence, it's value here. Oh wait, this is the day after isn't it? All right, forget that preamble above.
