4 stars So here is where it all began, a progressive gothic soundtrack based on Patrick McGoodham's British TV Series "The Prisoner". Complete with the tortured lyrics and vocals of Mr. Doctor, DEVIL DOLL deliver a wonderful yet very dark epic album full of violins, guitars, drums guitar bass and keyboards. As I listen and re-listen to these DEVIL DOLL albums, I am very conscious of the evil overtones of this music but always find so much color still within these recordings. I would not suggest you listen to these recordings with all you windows in your house wide open as the psychiatrists will be knocking at your door! I would call Mr. Doctor a modern day classical composer who uses music as his surrealistic canvass on which we paints his obsession with theatrical horror sceneries with dabs of vaudeville thrown into the mix. Really hard to peg down this music really but I would categorize as gothic prog. A very evil listen yet very wonderful album... may take others a few listens before they are hooked and always remember to listen with windows closed.
