5 stars This album's conception is just about as mysterious and hazy as the music contained within.

A quick summary of things regarding the album.

First of all, Bobby Beausoleil was related to the manson family and had a part in one of the Manson murders.

The man who was originally supposed to be doing this soundtrack was none other than Jimmy Page, but he and the director Kenneth Anger started to have a falling out. When Bobby ( who was in prison) ( through some earlier associatian with Kenneth) heard that Kenneth was making a movie and, he sent him a request if he could provide the soundtrack. So, Kenneth fired Page and someone how managed to get the prison to go along with Bobby making the soundtrack in jail. A lot of the instruments are "homemade" and it really is amazing that this entire soundtrack was made in prison by a convicted murderer, with some other jailmates, and it come out so amazingly well. There is even instruments like a Trumpet and a Fender Rhoades featured here.

The music itself is pretty trippy and psychedelic, and honestly sounds more like it belongs in the Psych Prog catagory, but it has plenty of electronics too. The first Part of the suite is my favorite. It is the creepiest and darkest songs on here, with it's heavy tripped out guitar playing, synth warblings, and incessant drum beat towards the end of the song. Another standout is the fifteen minute epic Part 5. It is has very high moments of grandeur with soaring trumpet. It also has a really catchy and nice synth line during the early part of this song.

If you can get your hands on this album, then do yourself a favor and get it.

Sheavy | 5/5 |
