3 stars Aaah, some good Biblical music done Residents style. Or, perhaps I should say aaarrrgghh.

Anyone who has done any extensive Bible study will know that there's a lot of odd stuff in there and leave it to the Residents to focus on a bunch of it. Their purpose here is not to mock Judaism or Christianity, but simply to point out some of the weirder tales and verses in the Bible that are often overlooked by mainstream and some of the extreme sects of Biblically based religion. And if you might think they're making anything up, the verses are referenced. "The purpose is to neither vilify or sanctify the book, but to allow it to be humanized."

What you get is an interesting collection of songs about the destruction of Sodom by fire, Earth women being impregnated by angels, God's magic finger, circumcision, masturbation, etc.

Not for the faint of heart, but musically excellent. Rounds down to three.

4 stars I travelled a dreary 350 miles to see the Residents perform this in '99 in London. I only remember a funny man with very long arms in a big fluffy suit screaming and bawling, but that may be because I was completely mashed at the time. 13 years later, I've a clearer head and can tell you tha ...
