Hilarious review. Even I in all my overwrought verboseness might never say: “a disciplined emulation of the riotously multiform abstract expressionist skies that can roll off surrounding ranges of hills and mountains to form over the city of Basel,” or “The oak parquet floor is of a type used in factories, with a grid of joints that is almost but not too emphatic.”
