5 stars INSANE- insane - INSANE - insane. ...what would you think of this ending words of the last track of an album abruptly finishing like this? INSANE! as the booklet tells the singer was hospitalized cause of his mental-illness he suffered those days. maybe this illness was the cause of making such delightfull tracks? we can find troubled lyrics on most tracks, angst, struggle...but the way he caress his guitars showing us a hidden talent to play it, it surely is mindblowing! a lot of dedication and concentration was deposit on each track; well i can say of that creature we see (like iron maidens "eddie") reflects a troubled/torment mind characterized by this hairy...comus? i really dont want to undertake to what i will say but: can this record be a concept album? i know about a masque/masquerade done in 17century named comus, (please refer) baroque style; maybe wootton or goring knew this play and therefore the debut and the name...lyrics?? for those who want to deepen in this, im full ears...otherwise listen BITTEN.
