Church of Anthrax: John Cale - post VU but still pre- solo artist days - working with minimalist avant (yawn) garde composer Terry Riley.

An interesting enough album, but no classic. The opening track Church of Anthrax is free jazz/ rock onslaught, The Hall of Mirrors in the Palace at Versailles (the only truly great track on the record) is truly inspired, and sounds like it was dreamed up sometime this afternoon - totally undated,totally genius. Ides of March is essentially comedy music, but it's to Cale/ Riley's eternal credit that it actually works. The Soul of Patrick Lee has food lyrics but the song is out of place here. Closing track The Protege could be a sketch for a future solo Cale song, but ends suddenly in a pitch of feedback as if they've just thought eff it, let's pull the plug.

All in all, this 2014 remaster sounds good, and the original production is great. CD also has informative liner notes on the story of the record, as well as a mysterious 700 word piece of text by Cale that was presumably on the sleeve or inner sleeve of the original release.
