This is a mystical oriented series of folk soundscapes and, later, experimental arrangements of sound. Douglas P. has an exceedingly rich talent to create original and innovative music, and it's in full swing here, full power. The album is a combination of Douglas P. of Death in June doing the guitar work with Boyd Rice reading P.'s lyrics over the music. Rice's readings are straight within the mystic feel, not oriented towards shocking people, as other Death in June/Boyd Rice collaborations have been. A very gentle a beautiful album, evoking haunted sea scapes and winter days with the snow slowly falling outside the window. Also, whatever Douglas P.'s political beliefs might be they aren't on showcase here in this album, except in the general sense that basically everything an artist does is inter-related in some way. While people might want to portray D-I-J as a particular way for their own purposes, this album shows the truth about the talent behind the controversy, which has been exploited by people on both sides of the aisle.
