The Truth
5 stars Lots of people will look at this record and think that the lineup is too good to be true, and it almost is, these 19 minutes are practically pure sonic bliss. All four artists contributing live up to their expectations and while many will shove this off as being too comedic in nature, it's actually a very serious and beautiful record.

Louis Wain on the cover definitely makes the outside hypocritical of the inside as the music is dark and brooding, even the Tiny Tim track recorded over the phone has an eerie feel to it. Nature & Organization's track is perhaps the most light-hearted and even it has some dark overtones. Current 93's pieces are as apocalyptic as ever but who can deny their ability to entertain their audience with such a dark brand of folk music unlike anything I've ever heard. Nurse With Wound closes the album with electronic darkness and one gets the feeling that Tiny Tim's electronic voice has been completely overcome by electricity and that's what the NWW track is.

Heck, maybe there is no concept but why take the fun out of things!

In short, this is just a cool little release worth anyone's time. It may not appeal to those without ears but to others who are more fortunate, it certainly will.

The Truth | 5/5 |
