5.0 out of 5 stars Afraid of Nothing 28 May 2010
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Lydia travels a long slow journey inwards, finally emerging as a female Curtis after eventually diving into her psyche to create a master-work based on a first impression; a deeply depressive internal dialogue. Through the voices, the violence emerges taking on a subversive erotique flavour. Playing it again over the years this album has only matured in its potency.

The guitars howl to a desperate internal theme, as the the sun hides from its own shadow. Obliterated by dust clouds we all drop into her dank subterranean caverns of bleak despair - The Suicide Ocean lapping throughout an ideation as it plays along to the Dance of the Dead Children. Dark vapours emit a luxuriant torch, where the light never shines, noises echo from the etched vinyl and bytes turn the room into a shroud. Goth is pantomime slapstick in comparison, this is Sylvia Plath clawing at the window bemoaning her Ted.

As the piano tinkles into an ivory bone hard desperation before jack knifing into grief, melancholia rises to a pitch where it can take no more. Alice in Wonderland pulls away from a thousand yard stare into nowhere. Sado masochistic violence rears and buckles in "Snake-pit Breakdown". Sex Working writhes within in Suicide Ocean, "different men in the same positions". Afraid of your company" is a howl into the fear of ever present violence. It's sung in a world weary drawl. Here she cares about her depression and it sounds bottomless with a resounding sense of personal alienation. Teenage Jesus was angry, this is beyond caring.

Unremitting bleakness fuelled with a huge blast of harmonic musical power. Strangely uplifting to be immersed in someone else's contortions of pain, bringing to the fore the connections between humans rather than their difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars The cloud of doom.... 21 April 2011
By NateMonroe - Published on Amazon.com
Lydia always had a Gothic feel to her...and this is her closest to gothic music in sound and atmosphere. Simply brilliant in delivery and atmosphere.

Very dark, very brooding, heavy in a foreboding atmosphere "A secret silence whisper deep in my head slow motion sick until tomorrow rewind erase nothing remains the way that nothing ever does"

It's anry "I love you and she hates me"

"He say he'll be there when I die, to stick a needle in my eye" Lydia screams over clunking drums and grating guitar.

This is one of Lydia's best. Even includes a piano piece called "Dance of The Dead Children" witha surprise crash at the end that made me jump the first time I heard this creepy song.

5.0 out of 5 stars i touched her 31 Aug 2005
By Michael Donovan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
i still have the ticket stub - Cabaret Metro in Chicago circa 1986 or 87. I loved her, worshipped her (but at the same time lusted after her beau du jour clint ruin) who was the headliner with his little-known band, Wiseblood. anyway, after she did her show (all spoken word - great, but i wanted songs), she fell back into the audience and I found myself right next to her. granted, i was 16 years old (I'm 34 now), but i remember it like it was yesterday. she was watching clint wail and, as she did so, i reached out and gently touched her shoulder. to me it was like a Duran Duran fan in the 80's or Beatles fan in the 60's. just to say that i touched her! she then looked at me, and, to this day, i really don't know everything i said to her. I think i likened her to a god or something. whatever i said, however, she replied with, "thanks, that's sweet."

-lydia lunch said the word sweet?

anyway, she is one of a kind and i (and all fans) can only hope that she is happy and may someday realease new material.

peace (and hell) to all.

1.0 out of 5 stars CDR rip-off 8 May 2013
By Mark Bowes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This package looks like something my 15-year old would make on his computer. Cheap packaging, cheap CD!
Where are the liner notes? And how can this have the France manufacturing information on it, when the label says it's made
in Kentucky? Avoid at any cost. Shame on Amazon for selling this.
