CD Reviews

Does Satan better then anybody because he's objective.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Roky lives behind a porno store and next to a trailer park in Austin,Texas. He needs your help!This is his best most cohesive peice of work.It puts the whole human and sub human experience to the Bo Diddley beat and has an aural sheen that will remind you of anything good you've heard in music.He uses the same mythology as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath but, can summon the fury of both those bands with just his voice. Some albums don't gain a wide audience because they blow.That is not the case here. This is the best album you have never heard or heard of.But it and cry.Buy it and boogie.Buy it and hide in the closet so the cops don't find you."
This is the best intro to Roky's weird world

"Black Sabbath only talks about being paranoid - Roky really brings you into his insane world, and it's worth the trip."
Why isn't this listed at one of rock's great albums?

"I only recently discovered this album after reading of Roky's decline and comeback, and I wonder, why is it all these years I'd never heard it? This is one of the greatest rock albums I've ever heard. When Roky sings 'i think of demons', he *means it*. This is a mind coming unglued, while still retaining incredibly musical genius.

This album should be in every collection."
