Julian Cope has beliefs that are part of his being. They are deep and religious, and affect his life at every stage.

This album lets us into his personal mindset, beliefs and fantasies. It's a great ride.

It kicks off with Soul Desert and never looks back. Searching, in the modern world dominated by rigid religions and worship of single gods, for a belief that rings true. Crop circles, higher beings (maybe extra terrestrials), the inner life of the earth, and the people of old with their stone circles and undogmatic earth worship allow this album to rinse away the current century.

So he's an old hippy then? Yes, suppose though. But not one of those bewildered old dope-addled old farts clinging on to the free sixties. There's intelligence in the lyrics and there's belief and sensitivity. The music is almost all played by Cope and takes the listener along with gentle melodies and crescendos.

It's one of the albums that takes a while to get to understand where it's coming from, but worth the wait. Love your Mother Earth. Can't think of an album that's gone where this one is, so full 5 stars here.

Format: Audio CD
`Jehovahkill' advanced on the double-album format of the previous year's `Peggy Suicide', 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 wonderfully - & along with `Peggy Suicide' and '20 Mothers' was 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/saxophonist 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 with a hint of krautrock that Radiohead would do now to acclaim, `No Hard Shoulder (To Cry On)' meanwhile has a mindblowing guitar sound that prefigures records like `OK Computer'. Cope is acoustic here (the beginning of `Soul Desert' - whose title is taken from Can - to the humorous `Julian H Cope') - but the album flows between these points.

Can't believe that 'the early nineties' is so darn long ago! Anyone who has the older versions of this album (I had it right from the day of release, when it came in a blue box) should seriously consider investing in this. As well as the original album, which is every bit as good as the other reviewer says, is a second disc, which is a contains all those tracks from those long-lost 'Fear Loves this Place' EPs, which are just fascinating. Cope is shown in full creative flight. A great document! Topping the disc is a long (over 20 minutes) version of standout track 'Poet is Priest', which I know will get played over and over agin by me . . . like the recent Orb reissue, I'm finding disc two is even better than the original album.
The music is all over the place, a real patchwork of garage, Krautrock, folk, melodious pop - the lot. Even if you've no idea about what the lyrics are about (and they aren't as opaque as you'd think) the music is enjoyable and even (dare I say it) frequently beautiful. The lyrics are easy enough to get if you've read 'The Modern Antiquarian', which Cope was working on at the time. My taste was more to 'Peggy Suicide' and '20 Mothers', but hearing this great set again has dislodged themfrom the top! What a unique talent the Arch Drude has. These various 'Deluxe Editions' are the most enjoyable thing to come out of the record industry for years, and I truly hope it's not long before 'Peggy Suicide' gets the same treatment.
UPDATE!!! Since writing this review after hearing it a few times, I read a few more by other listeners. Some reviewers are noticing low level crackling on parts of the album. I've relistened to mine, and yes, it is there, most obviously on the last track of disc 1 and a couple of tracks on disc 2 (not the ones recorded on a dictophone!).

Format: Audio CD
This album is a total classic and represents a significant highpoint in the extensive back catalogue of Mr Cope. However, the new (2006) Island/Universal 2CD remaster is HORRIBLE. As reported here and elsewhere, there is clearly audible distortion throughout all of the first disc (the original album) plus some of the second disc (bonus tracks). It reduces the sound from a £2000 CD+headphone system to that of a cheap MP3 player. Actually, no, a cheap minidisc player - it really is that bad. It is not possible to exaggerate the appalling downgrade in sound quality compared with the original 1992 Island CD. The recording has been mastered at ludicrously high levels which, sadly, seems to be the current vogue, but quite how no-one at Universal quality control let this distorted mess reach the shops is anyone's guess. The distortion is not present on the original release. The fault has been reported on Copey's own website, on Steve Hoffman's forum and on numerous entertainment retail sites. DO NOT BUY THIS CD. Pick up the original album as a used CD and download the bonus tracks. A CD sounding this bad offers absolutely no incentive to pay for music from a major record company.
