5 stars Without any doubts the summit of Goblin's production. The musical universe is really refined, consistent with a lot of cohesive arrangements. They determine in a few songs their typical musical style: a fusion of jazzy "funky" rock and dark symphonic orchestrations. The self title track is a grandiose composition made of church organ parts, heavy guitar sounds and electronics. The melody is very simplistic, epic and very charged emotionally speaking. "Aquaman" starts as an aquatic, acoustic & rather ethereal song. After a short introduction it directly reaches you into a fascinating spacey / floating voyage with very nice solo guitar parts. "Snip-snip" is a funny, humorous "groovy" song. "Dr Frankenstein" is a heavily "heroic" and "fantasist" musical invention mixed into a standard Goblin "jazzy" structure. The central melody is based upon modular synth lines, punctuated by acoustic piano and powerful guitar solos. Without any doubts Goblin's most representative, accomplished album.
