Format: Audio CD
Jerusalem by Sleep is an album with a very interesting history, released posthumously after the band's demise in different forms none of which were the exact version the band intended upon releasing. Jerusalem was the first version to surface for commercial release in 1999 and Dopesmoker, a version closer to the band's original plan found commercial release in 2003.

Which ever version you choose, it is really down to personal preference as they are both slightly different versions of not just the one album but the one song (discounting bonus tracks of course)

The album consists of one track, almost an hour long, with very few vocals and lyrics about a caravan transporting cannabis across the desert. Read that sentence a few times, and that will be all you need to know as to whether or not this album is for you. One track. Almost an hour. Cannabis Caravan.

When I first heard about the album, I was very excited. I am a fan of a lot of 1970s prog rock bands who wrote 20 minute songs often and occasionally a few, like Jethro Tull who would write entire albums out of just one song. I am also a fan of Stoner Rock and the thought of combining the two seemed like an amazing idea.

The album is certainly amazing, a very intense and challenging experience with a hypnotic quality to it. It takes a few minutes before the drums even kick in and the band jam out each riff for minutes on end, trying a variety of drum beats under almost every one, going minutes on end without any vocals and then doing it all over again once the vocals come in, then doing it all yet again with guitar solos.

When prog bands wrote an album out of one song, they only really had forty minutes to cover because of vinyl. The extra twenty minutes makes Sleep's effort all the crazier.

That's pretty much how I felt after I'd heard it all. I need to get my own copy of this since my friend's gonna want it back sooner or later.
This is an enormous titanic wall of sound. It's slow, repetetive, almost droning, but that's where the beauty of it is. It's like an enormous monolithic sound, and it's really a great guitar tone (thank Matamp for that), this album is one long track punctuated by the odd psychedelic guitar solo from Matt Pike who seems to leap between Iommiisms and Hendrixisms with ease.
This isn't for the faint of heart, I'd deffinitely work my way "up" to this, it's really just a sonic assault like no other. As far as "heavy" is concerned there was before Sleep, and there's after Sleep. But for those of us who can take a perverse pleasure out of droning walls of feedback and really almost nonsensical lyrics and wild guitar playing now and again...this is ace.

There's heavy and HEAVY and then there's Sleep. This sonic skullcrusher of an album is a continuous 52 minute Stoner Rock epic that will scramble your brains in your head, leave your ears bleeding and end up with you turning into a dribbling mess on the floor. Try to imagine the first few minutes of Black Sabbath (the track) with fluid lead guitar licks a plenty and a power house Rhythm section. Stretch that to 52 minutes with lyrics entirely about smoking dope and you're a gonna die... INCREDIBLE!

I originaly bought this for my wife as she liked "Holy mountain". When I eventualy played it,I was as stunned as when I first heard Atomic Roosters' "Death walks behind you" 37 years ago.It is quite simply a work of genius. It is the benchmark for "stoner metal" and contrary to general opinion, just edges the bands version "Dopesmoker".
Incidentally, at 53 minutes,it coincides almost exactly with my drive home from work,
(traffic allowing).
