truly awesome album. so awesome actually, that i can easily put up with the permanent invocations of god and the religious symbolism. anyway, it's also quite interesting, though not at all suprising, how god serves as a blank surface on which everything may be arbitrarily projected on.
Hard to believe it's been six years... I still remember the day this was released, driving to the city to buy a copy, and practically listening to it daily for the next full year. Still one of my favourite albums of all time.
