Where to start on this psychedelic souring sojourn ... and who says a healthy does of lysergic can't change your life?  It certainly changed the shape and sound of The Church, with one able to hear hints of this all over the release of Priest = Aura. Somewhere Anywhere is without a doubt one of the most impressive introspective enjoyable trippy albums you will ever come across ... with a lifetime of listening to this sort of material, just about making me an expert.
 
Their mind altering experiences turned them 180 degrees from their initial outings one Starfish, which was hugely successful and only hinted at the possibilities that were to come from this wayward group, though if one took the time to understand the nature of the lyrics found there, this was the obvious avenue The Church were headed down.  The songs are long lush and extraordinary beautiful.  Drop the needle anywhere on this record and it will take you to the stratosphere and leave you there. Everything dovetails together and flows like one fine piece of smooth cloth, and that says much for a conceptual album, which are often over filled and embellished with far too much material.

An aspect of late 60’s and early 70’s was that nearly everyone was making long conceptual albums, some even encompassed three records, and unfortunately most of them fell far short of the mark. By no means am I going to suggest that every song is as strong as every other here ... what I am going to say is that this release works on every level, producing one of the most significant conceptual releases in the last forty-five years. The band brought everything they knew and learned to this recording and spent a great deal of time and effort to find their personal voice and feel for this post 60’s psychedelic excursion. And (laughing) for those of you like me who can’t get enough, there’s an extended version which contains two discs.

Now please don’t go thinking that this is all atmospheric and ethereal, the boys manage to rock out on several numbers which flow in and out of the musical movement with fine quality and thought. The jangling sonically guitar driven efforts that The Church was famous for are still present, but in a more subdued expression, laced with an enchanting mixture of eastern sounds that flawlessly tying it all aspects together, with this album being as remarkably shocking to Church fans as Sgt. Pepper was to Beatle fans in 1967. And on that note, I’ve actually mixed Somewhere Anywhere and Magical Mystery Tour together to produce an amazing effect.  

Jimi Hendrix merely sang about kissing the sky, whereas The Church actually do. Best of luck on your journey, let me know how it goes.
