5.0 out of 5 stars Best so far, 29 Jun 2013
I've lived with this album for a couple of weeks, and I really do think it's Matt Berrys' best yet. Whereas Opium seemed like a demo album (although excellent and well polished), and Witchazel held together well as an album, Kill The Wolf brings it all together. It has a kind of Wicker Man / Blood On Satans Claw 1970's Englishness to it, and seems to take itself more seriously than its predecessors.

Highlights for me are Fallen Angel, Medicine, October Sun and Untitled, but really I love the whole thing.

I also think the back cover is hilarious, now that's tongue in cheek!

Nicely done Sir.

I am currently reading Paul Duncans' sublime James Bond Archives, but after receiving this I'm giving my arms a rest for a while!

All making of books should be like this. None of the usual studio sanctioned vanilla writing, but the stuff you really want to know; who screen tested, why didn't they get the role, all the different script iterations, post release analysis, it's all here.

Tim Dalton was possibly ahead of his time as Bond. I wish he could have played the role longer as this book really shows the dedication he brought to it.

If the cost of Charles Helfensteins' books is putting you off, don't let it. They really are worth it. I'm now waiting for… Read more

I was an avid reader of James Herbert when I was young, enjoying most of his books. Unfortunately, Ash really is something else. It seems to be James Herberts' first comedy! There is no other explanation for the non-sensical character motivations and utterly ridiculous situations. The sex scene needs to be read to be believed.

On the upside, it only cost me 20p. Worth it for that sex scene I suppose.
So, 1 star for a horror story, possibly 5 stars as a comedy. U decide!
