If you’re in the mood Lord Of Lords is an amazing listen, full of high drama or calming spirituality, but be warned this really is nothing like what she has done before. The nearest comparison would be her phenomenal World Galaxy album, but that still had elements of jazz to it, whereas this album really is only orchestral and contains none of the snaky jazzy rhythms of that previous album. This is similar in concept to Alan Silva’s Seasons in that it is more of a orchestral album than a jazz one, but this is much more manageable in length, and much, much more listenable. Side two of this album finishes with an incredibly beautiful version of the traditional spiritual “Going Home”. The album is well worth asking price for that track alone. Probably not an album you’d chuck on just for something to listen to, but when has Alice Coltrane ever made an album so lightweight as to just be a chuck-on album.
