A rare gem...
David B. Leikam | 94306, Earth | 11/27/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This compositional piece is very modern. It also has very good studio engineering. If you are into surrealist, atmospheric music with a interesting plot on Charlie Manson. BUY THIS! Iggy Pop plays the prosecutor & the Executive producer is Philip Glass. Recommended before it goes out of print!"
A Warped Fever Dream

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an opera way before its time. Composer John Moran utilizes minimalist piano, strings, sound effects (such as chirping birds, wailing sirens, zooming cars, etc.) and tape loops to evoke the thoughts and actions of Charlie Manson, the Family and the justice system in regard to the Tate/LaBianca murders and their aftermath. Among the gifted vocalists on this disc is Iggy Pop using his unique baritone to depict the prosecutor. There are two brilliant homages/satires of the Beatles that incorporate horns and tablas to reflect Mr. Manson's obsession with them. I highly recommend this wonderfully weird record to anyone with an interest in Charlie Manson and/or to enthusiasts of avant garde music."
