5.0 out of 5 stars L-if-E of Brian... 10 Aug 2006
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Released officially in 2004, the year in which Genesis Breyer P-Orridge returned with Throbbing Gristle, 'Godstar: Thee Director's Cut' is a two-disc expansion of a concept pop odyssey - a soundtrack to an as yet unproduced film of Brian Jones once of the Rolling Stones. You really should avoid that awful Stoned film, unless you're a fan of the excellent Paddy Considine. Gen's sleevenotes - An Over-Painted Smile...Re-collections of Mo-Meants Ov Inspiration 1963- 2004 - give the background to the soundtrack and the theme. Formed from half of Throbbing Gristle - Gen P-O and Peter'Sleazy'Christopherson - the original PTV's recordings took in future Coil member and cult god the late John Balance and a key collaborater here, Alternative TV's Alexander Fergusson. The initial albums 'Force the Hand of Chance' and 'Dreams Less Sweet' were released on Some Bizarre and were alien-pop wonders - fantastic, key records that warrant a reissue as wonderful as this ('Dreams Less Sweet' I used to hear at a friend's house when in my teens, along with Associates' 'Sulk' it really changed things for me). Christopherson eventually left - see the Temple Ov Psychick Youth if you must - going on to work with the might Coil (whose 'Scatology' also needs a Grey Area style reissue!!!). 'Godstar...' continued the mutant-pop of the previous albums, and caught Gen-P at a point between those records, memories of the psychedelic era and of Brian Jones, and the E-fuelled work of the late 80s/early 90s: 'Jack the Tab', 'Tekno Acid Beat' & 'Towards Thee Infinite Beat.'

There were a few other acts existing in a similar plain - making contemporary records that nodded to ze sixties and in particular psychedelia. You could argue TG got there first with 'Six Six Sixties' and those allusions to the Manson Family.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Godstar" 4 Oct 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"GODSTAR" was thee theme song from a feature film ov thee same name that Psychic TV and friends hoped to begin shooting on Brian Jones' B-earthday on February 28th 1986. Thee saga ov that song's independent release, its subsequent incredible success and sudden sabotage is chronicled in detail in thee accompanying booklet by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge. Also included are illustrations and previously unpublished photographs of Brian Jones from thee 1960's and facsimiles of unique memorabilia documenting thee L-if-E inspiring meeting S/HE had with The Rolling Stones and Brian Jones in 1965.
These two CDs are thee first T.I.M.E. that all thee songs, instrumentals and soundtrack segments for "GODSTAR-thee movie" have been digitally re-mastered and then assembled exactly in thee order intended in 1986 and includes new songs, bonus tracks and mixes. Thee result is an amazing and classic HYPERDELIC pop experience. Thee first movie to watch with your eyes closed...and with an opened mind!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brian would be proud! 21 Aug 2006
By Ryan Winn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As someone who appreciates experimental and pop music equally, I have to say that this album features the best of each. Songs like Godstar and Just Like Arcadia are great pop (in the context of Psychic TV) songs, while A Mind Blown Is a Mind Throne and Abstract Reality showcase the band's avant garde sensibilities. Instead of the album feeling schizophrenic, it actually fits together somehow, offering variation rather than incoherence. The more experimental songs are by no means unlistenable or boring; on the contrary they are the most rewarding in my opinion. The cover songs add a period feel while touches such as P-Orridge's spoken word during the climax of Good Vibrations remind you that this is from the man who was once called a "wrecker of civilization".
The liner notes are a real treat. The essay by P-Orridge gives a lot of information, not just on the making of these songs but also on the history of his fascination with Brian Jones.
The more I listen to these disks, the more I wish Psychic TV's early albums were still in print. Thankfully, we have this.

5.0 out of 5 stars the tragedy of brain jones 3 Dec 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
im sorry to have to correct the other reviewer on here, but i feel the need to clarify the information at hand. this is the soundtrack to a movie that was never made (read the booklet for more info) on BRIAN JONES, not brian wilson. the opening lines of the title track should be enough to alert you of this particular fact. "this is a story/a very special story/it's about brain jones/the one on the rolling stones". do they do a cover of good vibrations? yes. does that have anything to do with anything? not really, i think they just dug the song.
that aside...
this album was previous released as an unfinished work under the title 'allegory and self: the starlit mire'. this was always one of my favorite ptv releases, but DONT GO GET IT!!! get this one instead. this is the album as it was intended to be. remastered and finalised, this is an AWESOME release that any fan is sure to adore. get it get it get it!

3.0 out of 5 stars some great stuff - lots of filler 2 Jun 2008
By noisician - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is an overblown, filler-packed version of a what would have been a real good LP-length album.

But yes, the good stuff is real nice.
I am a big fan of these:
- Godstar (pick a version - Ready Steady Go is the best I think)
- As Tears Go By
- Je T'Aime, Moi Non Plus
- Just Like Arcadia
- Roman P
- Good Vibrations

I just think that unless you are a PTV fanatic (perhaps like some of the other reviewers?) it would be hard to recommend paying top dollar for this 2CD set. And it is a bit annoying to listen to the album straight through - as you'll hear 6 versions of the best track (Godstar).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best soundtracks I have ever heard 26 Nov 2004
By Maxi Movie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have read in the booklet that the movie on Brian Wilson ("Godstar") were to be shot in 1986. Psychic TV then never made it and now has released the soundtrack in 2004. What a great idea.

Me and my friends are extremely surprised because of the extraordinary quality of the songs. You will not find something similar. Strange, fresh, virtous musicians, same dark aspects in it. Some songs by Brian Wilson as great cover versions. My favourite is "Just like Arcadia". I have been listening to it for weeks now.
