I'm a big fan of Hart and his previous work with Nova Mob and of course the majestic Huskers.So I was intrigued by the premise of the record as i felt the last couple of his records were a bit under par.Hart is a true artist a man who has drenched his soul in life experience both good and bad and he sings of it in his music. This record is about good and evil coming to the world and the story of the devils appearence in ancient fables. There are some fantastic songs here, pure pop pleasures that are instantly enjoyable.There are others that slowly reveal themselves as equally brilliant.For me a couple of songs struggle a little bit but as they often describe a dark passage from the book (lost paradise - William Buroughs) its understandable that they are chaotic, dark or over dramatic. He sounds a little like Bowie on a few songs and it made me think that if Bowie had made this album he would of sold it by the million and received rave reviews. All in all a great effort from a quiet, inteligent punk legend.
