4 stars Ok let's not beat around the bush. This is one of the all time greatest progressive pysch band to ever exist. So why so few reviews? I can't believe that more people aren't crazy about these guys, like I am. If you have never heard of them,you don't know what you're missing. But,all of that aside. This is one of the best LPD lp's ever. It is a concept album about a legendary crazy man in an asylum (hence the title) that thinks he is Jesus! I have to admit that the lead singer (Ed Ward Ka -Spel)'s voice is somewhat of an aquired taste,but truthfully,in my opinion nobody else could handle the chore of vocals for a group as diverse as this one,except Ka- Spel! He's the poet of the group. And like I once told a friend whom I had recently introduced to this band "Ka-Spel is a painter,he paints pictures in your mind with his words" Which did blow my friends mind,but he later ageed with me saying he knew just what I had meant.Now,you can read this review or not. And you can check out LPD's music for yourself,or not. But don't blame me if you found that you've missed some of the greatest prog pyschrock ever recorded. Just spead the good word once you've tuned in to the LPD's music!
