I thought of saving this for some special commemorative post or something, but why be so greedy? This is one that everyone should heard, but far too many haven't. If you weren't to partial to the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, there's no need to worry (I think that album is overrated too). This is really unlike anything of the time, circa 1973. Listen to just the first song (Time Captives) and I'm sure you'll agree. Maybe the only thing like this going on around/prior to it's release would be the Silver Apples and some synthy Krauts, but I can't think of much else. Suicide & Hawkwind kind of get a at similar thing too. There's some fucked drum machine menace (used on every track), that makes it sound at least ten years ahead of it's time. Weirdo synths and vocal effects only make this more hallucinatory eerie. And, of course, Brown provides some really unhinged singing. Oh, I just love this one. Easily in my top ten of all time. I've seen this with an alternate cover, but this is how my lp looks and I prefer it anyways.
