5 stars This is one of those albums that I knew that I liked the first time listening to it. But just like any great material it is easy to sink into but difficult to master.

The material featured on God In Three Persons took a lot of time to really settle in. I think that I had to listen to it at least twenty or so times in order to combine the narrative with the music. But I don't regret it since it's now one of my top 10 favorite albums! There really is no point in discussing the music except possibly saying that it sounds very simple but in that simplicity hides the true essence of a majestic the Residents experience. Lyrically this is one of the most twisted tales ever told in a format of an album. This story is very graphical and I was truly shocked and disgusted by it the first few times. A had a similar experience when listening to Velvet Underground's The Gift although the Resident make it all even more figurative.

Once you can overcome the shock God In Three Persons presents you with a true masterpiece of an album that should not be missed out on!
