inaccessible but brilliant, not for the casual listener
Ok this record deserves 5 stars really. But I am only given it 4 stars since you have to be in a certain mood to really appreciate the music and it's not an easy listen even then. As to this mood you have to be in it should be bordering on the schyzophenic due to all the 'mood' swings in the music. That's right, not tempo changes but mood changes, one minute a song sounds like black sabbath, then it's 30seconds punk, then it's a minute of theatrical goth or something, mix in some poppy tunes in here and there and you get the idea. Anyway describing it is really hard. Buy and listen and don't give up after the first listen. I had trouble with the album first month I bought it but now I really appreciate it as one of those crazy masterpieces when I actually give it the attention it deserves.
