The album that launched Cellsum and the Brain Surgeons. Blue Oyster Cult co-founder Albert Bouchard and Deborah Frost, noted rock scribe in the words of the New York Times, trace the musical journey of Albert Bouchard between his last Blue Oyster Cult album, 1988's Imaginos, in 1988 and this 1994 release.
Moody, spooky-- and funny!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"That Albert Bouchard is one spooky dude. First he writes & co-writes most of the early, deeply weird BLUE OYSTER CULT material. Then, at a point when B.O.C. fans were starved for new material, hits us with this. What a blast! From the melodic ("Language Of Love") to the funky ("Soul Jive") to jazzy ("Mad Dude") and back to horror-movie stuff ("666--Devil Got Your Mother"-- does the son of Satan REALLY look like John Denver??) and even, in a fit of pure Albert madness, RETRO ("Love Potion #9"-- in acapella!!). It doesn't get any cooler than this, folks! And let me not forget wife Deborah Frost. This lady has one SCARY voice!!! Take a listen to "Time Will Take Care Of You" (as she tells us "I am so BAAAAAAAAD!!!") and tell me what level of Hell she's standing in when she sings this.THE BRAIN SURGEONS are up to their 5th CD so far-- and while my favorite song turned up on their 4th, they've yet to do a whole album I like more than this one. (But then Bouchard's stuff has a strange way of growing on me over the years...)"
ALBERT'S NEW WAVE OF METAL

"It was my hope that Albert would form a band after his often stormy days with Blue Oyster Cult. He and his brother Joe were the songwriting nucleus of B.O.C. and it was a shame they and the Oyster Boys parted ways. Albert and goodwife Deborah win big musically with EPONYMOUS. I suppose that I PLAY THE DRUMS and L.P.#9 could have been deleted from this shiny mother pearl, if I had been in control. But Albert and whatever band he's in, does best on his own songs. It's good to see him and Deborah enlist a little help from their friends, such as Patti Smith and Richard Meltzer. MAD DUDE is my personal favorite in this album."
The album title says it all

"An excellent album from a founding member of Blue Oyster Cult, Albert Bouchard. Most of the instruments are played by Albert and his wife Deborah Frost. Deborah has a great rock and roll voice, melodic and powerful. Like Bouchard's work for Blue Oyster Cult, the lyrics on this album are funny, twisted and curveball. The Brain Surgeons should be a huge band, but this album is very hard to find. There is no justice in pop music. Purchase this album, enjoy the music, and help restore the scales of justice."
