W. Cullen Hart's latest Circulatory System LPa collage of Beatles-eque pop experiments and other sound scrapsoffers a handful of inspired snippets mired in too much sluggish, avant-garde muck. Highlights include the whimsical "Aerial View of a Heart (From Above)" and "If You Think About It Now"this project works best when Hart is dabbling in Sgt. Pepper/Kinks territory.
