5.0 out of 5 stars It Fed My Rock And Roll!, 20 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Black Sheep (Audio CD)
I never went out looking for this album, I didn't know it existed, but I sincerely think that it must have been calling to me (I really think that happens; really good music calls out to be heard in the same way that good books call out to be read - it must be an outward psychic expression created by the artists brilliance contained within a fixed medium - like hunting in reverse. When I first heard it I was surprised, awed, intrigued, astounded, amazed, fascinated and impressed beyond words; I have got to say that this is one of the most amazing albums I have listened to for years. And that was only the first time!!! Julian Cope's style varies with each song so there is little consistency in that respect but each song is an individual masterpiece and it is this inconsistency that makes the album so marvellous as it draws you in. There are good albums, brilliant albums, outstanding albums and, if you are lucky, albums you'd want to be buried with; then there are albums like Black Sheep that transcend definition, albums like these need to be experienced.

The bizarre thing is that there is no one defining factor that can tell you that "this song" or "that song" is so good, it's as though the songs enter the listener's head and completely transform their perception and thought processes. And this is a very thought provoking album, raising very pertinent, very real issues that should not be overlooked; this album asks us to consider our priorities and accept the consequences of ignorance in a world where ignorance is still the best tool of suppression governments and religions have in their arsenal. This album will make you think and it will stir you in ways you couldn't expect and it will fill your entire being because it touches all the parts of your soul that been waiting for this musical and lyrical experience.

Listen to this album, open your eyes and follow the Black Sheep where it leads you - this is more than just music, it's Heathen Rock And Roll.
