Format: Audio CD
The bittersweet songs of Hullo Angel, Giddy Giddy Carousel and Fall Apart sparkle with the passion of Jacques Brel singing lullabies to Genet. Transcending gender, sexuality and time to rise into eternity. The songs are startling in their simplicity execution and invocation.

Whilst the subjects intone grief and despair, they are strangely uplifting. Perversity; misreading is all in the subjective experience. I offer one interpretation. They sound as lullabies with the call and response as the subject matter arises into a spiritual dimension, albeit a cold icy spirit.

The longer tracks dealing with cut ups intone the disappearing world of the 20th century. A time of mass blood letting, ideologies and beliefs. In the 21st century ideologies have dissipated, existing only for those locked outside of the inner hub. They are a mechanism, a lever to join the throng rather than advocate its overthrow. The cut up political world of the 20thC appears strangely historical, another time another place, when people had beliefs in systems to cling onto, the belief in progress. The cut ups harken back to this world but do not intone it. The upholders of all belief systems are dying out in old age. The only true stability is money and power.

This is why the lullabies are stronger because they deal with human emotions and invoke the spirit however flawed in a majestic beauty. After the spleen was vented in all pigs must die cut ups the beauty emerged again in "The Rule of Thirds".

Solitude is Not Given--It is Earned 3 Jun 2004
By Curt Surly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album withstand any attempt to limit it with categorization. Of all DI6's work thus far, this one is essential to put me into a most sinister mood. It is dark and pretty. It is achingly sound aesthetically. The mood is militaristic and liturgical. Perfect for a sacrifice, actually.
There are two very long songs that are heavily layered with various samples and instrumentation. These are "The Wall of Sacrifice", which opens the CD at 16 minutes and "Death is A Drummer", the final track on my CD, at 9 minutes. It looks as if there is an extra track on this release, "Heilige Tod".
The Players on this album are all worthy accomplices. Along with Douglas, there is Tibet, Rose McDowell, Boyd Rice, Andrea James, Nikolas Schreck and Jan O. All of these folks have done fine work--going back nearly 30 years for some.
This CD contains several of Douglas' greatest songs: "Giddy Giddy Carousel", "Fall Apart", and "Hullo Angel". It also has my personal all time favourite, "In Sacrilege" It always puts me in a right terrifying stance.
Overall, this CD has some faithfully heavy moments. It is also replete with Douglas's uncompromising poetic vision. It shimmers and decays at once. Play it for your Mother. Maybe she'll be so moved that she'll immediately go out and sign up.
Now, this is dark beauty 19 Nov 2007

I rarely hand out 5 stars, but this and "But What Ends..." so readily deserve such an honor. Just try to play this and not "fall apart."
