THIS ALBUM IS PERFECT

No record collection is anywhere NEAR complete without it.

Uniquely & superbly one of the VERY BEST 10 ALBUMS IN THE WORLD!

First get JEHOVAHKILL, then go for 'Peggy Suicide' and then 'Autogeddon' - truly a trilogy beyond compare.

Most of his other many MANY albums are EXTREMELY DIVERSE in style; some you may possibly love more than these three but others you'll likely hate but there's only one or two I personally dislike

This one though, is ESSENTIAL!!!

13 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME on 7 Jan. 2004
Format: Audio CD
that got him dropped from Island!
Jehovahkill advanced on the double-album format of Peggy Suicide (1991), Cope undergoing an epiphany & going upwards at 45 degrees after a minor-diversion towards the mainstream (see autobiography Repossessed/Head-On). Cope had some success with Peggy Suicide, delivering an album in phases, & Jehovahkill both advances & continues that. The Floored Genius-compilation had sold well & the Jehovahkill-tour, which had epic shows, sold out. So, why was Copey dropped shortly after the release of this?????
Jehovahkill has dated brilliantly- & along with Peggy Suicide & 20 Mothers is his most consistent album of the 90s (the others were good, sometimes great, but with poor moments). Cope & long-time collaborator Donald Ross Skinner with drummer/saxophinist Rooster Cosby are the band for this album, which advanced Cope's autogeddon/megalithic/enviromental concerns & comes with a booklet leading towards Cope's books The Modern Antiquarian and The Megalithic European: stone-circles, pre-Christ cross, quotes from forward-thinking drudes like William Blake & Philip K Dick...
The music sounds great now, it has dated brilliantly- it's easy to see an influence on the Radiohead of Kid A/mnesiac here: Poet is Priest is futurist-dance music that Radiohead would do now to acclaim, while No Hard Shoulder (To Cry On) has a mindblowing guitar sound that prefigures records like OK Computer. Cope is acoustic here (the beginning of Soul Desert, the humourous Julian H Cope) - but the album flows between these points. There are spacerock-inflected instrumentals (Necropolis, The Subtle Energies Commission), divine alt-pop (The Mystery Trend, Slow Rider, Fa-Fa-Fa Fine)& strange psychedelic droning classics like Know (Cut My Friend Down) & Gimme Back My Flag.

This was a bit of an oddity at the time - we were used to 'electric Julian', and had not really heard a lot of accoustic stuff from him. That saying, there is a fantastic rave/dance workout called 'Poet Is Priest' which is worth the five stars on its own! Other highlights are the opening 'Soul Desert', which builds from accoustic guitar to restrained freakout. 'Give Me Back My Flag' is a bass heavy, spacey track, which is really compelling and 'Fa-Fa-Fa Fine' is a top pop track. Takes a few listens, but when it hits the spot, it REALLY hits the spot!

One of most eye-opening releases of the 90's 17 Aug. 1999
By Michael Paulsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Julian Cope hit a creative peak in the early 90's with Peggy Suicide and then this album. Peggy Suicide was more commercially viable, but Jehovahkill is a genuine powerhouse. Musically all over the map -- from the pop bliss of "The Mystery Trend" and "Fa-Fa-Fa Fine" to blistering Krautrock primal scream therapy ("Upwards at 45 Degrees", "The Subtle Energies Commission") to techno-dance ("Poet Is Priest"). On the closing mother-goddess "war of the genders" epic, "The Tower", Cope recalls The Doors' "The End", sounding uncannily like Jim Morrison at times. This album is a feast of musicianship and experimentalism with a cynical, mystical neo-hippy edge that only arch drude Julian can deliver so perfectly. A classic.

Pure Genius 20 Jun. 2001
By theAllPurpose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You'll want to sit back and listen to this album from start to finish without doing anything else - definitely try listening with headphones. This is trippy psychedelic pop with influences from Kraftwerk to Iggy Pop and everything in between. Unbelievably excellent production, songwriting, and vocals. The title may scare some people off, but the theme of the album as you may guess is organized religion and how it has screwed our society up - excellent lyrics that are never preachy. Why is Julian Cope not much more famous and why has this album been deleted without ever receiving the publicity it deserves? Probably because the major labels want us to consume "Safe" music. This is one of Julian Cope's 4 masterpieces (my favourite one overall)- the others being Peggy Suicide, Autogeddon, and 20 Mothers.

mysterious pop 23 Sept. 2005
By J. Holmes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Julian Cope is a bit of a legendary figure who has a tendency to write really earthy ragged pop songs with an offbeat edge. his songs are so great because he infuses them with pure personality. this kind of characteristic seems to drive the songwriting process forward into a solid effort everytime the studio reels start rolling. Cope's tunes are filled with joy, sorrow, confusion, and many times silliness. his love of obscure psychadelic music is well documented on his HeritageHead website; and his solo work draws alot of inspiration from that particular style. the guitar work tendfs to be a bit spacey at times, and the rhythms are primal and well thought out. every song seems to have it's own steady pulse and Julian rides over all of it like some sort of half-crazed insightful singing shaman.

Jehovakill starts off alot like how Peggy Suicide ended. with the strums of an acoustic guitar and Cope's low voice telling us how he was "lost and loveless in your soul desert." a great beginning to a strange tale of an album. things seem to be a little more scaled back on this record...which draws out a very cool starkness to some of these pieces. particularly "Know (Cut My Friends Down)", "Slow Rider", and "Give Me Back My Flag." that same skeletal feeling is ripe on the 10 minute "The Tower." in my opinion, Jehovakill is just as good as Peggy Suicide and could almost be seen as companion albums.

Blew my mind 11 Nov. 2005
By Bourbeau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an amazing album. Julian Cope is an amazing singer and his writing on this album is extremely mature. "Upwards at 45 Degrees" and "Fear Loves This Place" are chilling. This is one of the few albums I've ever heard where I say, "I wouldn't change a single thing about that record." And it's a very LONG record, so that says a lot in my opinion.

a captivating combination of catchy sounds and weird words. 29 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i'm struck by the inherent catchiness, the instant appeal, of jehovakill's sounds, contrasted by the intriguing mysticism of cope's lyrics. after all, an album that makes you both tap your foot and think a tad is rare, is it not? the album's tones and musical media are diverse, ranging from "Know(cut my friends down)'s" vocal strength and acoustic simplicity to the edgy guitar riff of "Slow Rider." and i must say, cope's interest in Ancient British cults, and his devotion to redefining Christianity's Cross as a universal human emblem, are amusing if not interesting. i wholeheartedly recommend this album through the ears of someone who stumbled upon it and has been diggin' its weird science ever since.
