The much-anticipated definitive release of Lift To Experience's seminal double concept album, The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads, mixed as God intended. The album is a brand new mix of the classic album, overseen by the band and engineer Matt Pence and features rejuvenated album artwork (an homage to the Texas-based graphics design studio Pen & Pixel famed for their 90's Southern gangsta rap album covers).
Top Customer Reviews
The CD packaging (all card) is great and colourful but, as before, there are no full lyrics just some brief quotes taken from some of the songs (-you need the deluxe LP boxset for that as it comes with a 24-page booklet with photos and complete lyrics amongst other things, but unfortunately Amazon don't seem to be selling it, they are only selling this double CD and the standard, but still lovely, gatefold double LP with coloured vinyl). This time round, CD1 is blue and CD2 is red (it was the other way round in 2001).
Finally, the small round sticker on the front (see my photo!) implies that the pack includes a download code for the old 2001 version AND the new 2017 remastered version, but there was only one download card in mine with a link to .flac files of the original album (and I know other people have found the same). Maybe I've misunderstood the sticker! Still, you are in effect getting 2 x double albums in one format or another for under a tenner (at the time of writing), so can't grumble!
Wonderful music that gives me something new every time I listen to it, I can't recommend this enough.
"Is the world really ready for a 75-minute progressive country-emo concept album by three God-fearing ranch hands about Texas being the Promised Land?" asked NME on the release of this album in 2001. "Not yet" was probably the precise answer. However, the album quickly garnered mass critical acclaim and as discerning music lovers picked up on its brilliance, the wonderment grew.
The listener can happily immerse themselves into the concept of the album or equally choose to ignore it as the music stands in its own right. The central plot revolves around Texas emerging from the apocalypse as a geographical "Noah's Ark " with its epicenter in the town of Denton. It is littered with biblical references throughout and contains epic songs with titles like "Down with the Prophets" or "Grounds so soft" which is based on 1st Corinthians. These two CDs can barely contain the scope and scale of vision underpinning this concept and at times it feels as big and awe-inspiring as the Lone Star state itself.Read more ›
