CD Reviews

John Scott Tynes | Seattle, WA USA | 01/24/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Alan Moore (WATCHMEN, FROM HELL, V FOR VENDETTA) cuts loose with this album-length spoken-word meditation/ritual encompassing Mystic London, the Kray twins, the magickal correspondences within the wedding of Charles & Diana, Jack the Ripper, and the entire freaking cosmos including Richard Nixon. It's an amazing, mind-bending piece of work, with haunting music and sound by Bauhaus's David J and friends. If you've read Moore's FROM HELL, you may remember the tour of mystic London that Gull takes with his cab driver; by the end of it, the driver is overcome as Gull reveals the grand mystical design underpinning London and tying together all its landmarks. This album is in the vein of that travelogue, with Moore as your holy-fool narrator. Don't miss this gem! (--John Tynes, Pagan Publishing)"
Don't wake the snake!

"Alan Moore, long considered a unique and innovative writer in the "comic book" field, proves himself to be an artist of real and profound vision with this recording. The listener is taken on a geographical and historical tour of London, and that is only the beginning. Mr. Moore escorts us further, into another London, that which like all cities exists in the heads of it's inhabitants. From there we travel further and further into occult realms of the mind - that place where all creation begins and ends - and are given a glimpse of Truth - "There is only one person." The aural soundscapes created by David J and Tim Perkins complete this journey into the mystic. Buy it today but be warned - this is heavy and heady stuff, it may just change your mind. literally."
Stunning and hypnotic

"The album is amazing. Alan Moore's voice reaches a hypnotic and enthralling intensity that truly captivates. I don't generally like spoken word, but I loved this album. The first and last track listings (actually it's just one track on the cd) are actually songs with A Moore singing. The rest has him speaking with soundscapes pulsating in the background. He goes over quite a bit of material that he wrote of in his "From Hell" serial. Mostly his ideas on British history and folklore. I've never been particularly interested in such, but hearing him talk about it was (and is) amazing!"
