5.0 classicMentalVortex | October 16th 14

This is a great album, probably Skyclad's most consistent. As with all great music it takes a little bit of effort to unlock the door to this albums true potential, so give it a few listens then come back to it. The production on this is probably the best Skyclad ever had, this allows the powerful and diverse musical element of the band to really shine. Martin gives the best vocal performance of his career with his lyrical witiscisms intertwining perfectly with the music. No lyricist comes close to the poetic intellectualism and power of tracks such as 'Think Back And Lie Of England'. I never understood why the lyrics of Skyclad are so underrated because they stand head and shoulders above every great lyricist I can think of. That said it's nearly 15 years since this album came out and it's a real shame that Martin Walkyier has deprived the world of his cutting insight since. Come on Martin there is an overwhelming minority of us out there who refuse to take part in the ilk of human blindness and I for one miss your contribution to this one piece puzzle.
