The Truth
4 stars The obscure cult gem that Prog Archives made not so obscure anymore. A truly astonishing record and amazing thing to listen to considering the period it was released in.

This album contains some topics I don't think had been explored in music before, certainly not folk music, and the way they are delivered is just so odd it's hard not to be at least interested in listening to it. I mean, a song about insulin shock therapy with light hearted vocal harmonies and flute. That's how awesome this album is. The acidic folk music that Comus played just sounds good to the ears and then the lyrics come parading in with corpses and insanity. See why it's so hard to explain?

Overall, the album is something every prog fan should check out. It has quite the following on this site and there's a reason for that.

Beautiful folk music about rape.

And this was released in 1970?

The Truth | 4/5 |
