"A deeply personal musical statement from Bobby BeauSoleil, a [2LP] concept album featuring a mix of vocal and instrumental tracks tracking the meandering path of his journey to spiritual understanding. Among the vocal tracks performed by BeauSoleil are both covers and original songs, some with guest performances by Annabel Lee Moynihan, Michael Moynihan, Robert Ferbrache, and Mike Behrenhausen. A lavish triple gatefold cover integrates evocative photographs by Nicholas Syracuse with calligraphy by Timo Ketola. This album was recorded at Oregon State Penitentiary between 2008 and 2015."
My personal take: As with everything BB has done over the years, his latest work is nothing short of ethereal, taking you to places beyond your imagination should you allow it. If nothing else, this is an incredible work of psychedelic rock music, some of the heaviest you will hear on the atmospheric/spiritual front. One of 2018's most criminally overlooked releases. Highly recommended.
Double LP with printed inner sleeves and metallic foil triple gatefold jacket with full color printing. One colored vinyl, one black vinyl. The vinyl edition comes with a free download card.
