Passionate work by Blackie regains an old fan
on 19 October 2009
I'm 36. As a young teen, W.A.S.P. were absolute heroes of mine. I sort of "outgrew" them around '89 or so. I never even bought "The Headless Children". Don't ask me why. Until recently I had no idea what I had been missing out on.
Fast forward to about a month ago. I see a thread on a forum "NEW WASP SONG; CRAZY". I go and listen and BAM!! I'm 12 years old again. I couldn't escape the sheer giddy-ness of hearing my old idol doing it better than ever.
While waiting for this CD to be delivered I ordered every W.A.S.P. CD that I missed out on (except KFD, and SNBU, those are coming soon). Catching up with Blackie has been a very rewarding experience.
This turns me to "Babylon". I don't know how to properly express how much I love this album. Every song is a winner. As much as I love "Crazy" it's not even my favorite song. That's a toss up between "Live To Die Another Day" and "Godless Run". The lyrics on this album are fantastic. You can tell that Blackie really believes that the world is on fire and I agree with him 100%. He doesn't name names, but I know what he's talking about here. The New World Order and the beginning of the end are upon us and the prophecies of the Bible are coming to fruition. I really like it when I can hear someone in the political arena speak for me. It's even greater to have some killer music that tells the tale as well. Blackie and Dave Mustaine are both right on top of this stuff.
Thanks for this great album, Blackie.
If you've ever liked even one song by W.A.S.P., buy this CD. You'll like it.
