Notes

First edition of 2000 copies in clear vinyl. Comes with a black inner sleeve, a 4-page 12" sized booklet and a little round sticker on the front cover that reads: "Current 93: Hallucinatory Patripassianist Song."

In 1998 this LP was reissued in a limited run of 300 copies on amber vinyl, to use up some excess sleeves left over from the first pressing. In 2004 another 67 numbered editions on amber vinyl with a hand drawn-cover by David Tibet were released.

      Current 93 at the height of their powers. This has to be one of the most magical albums ever recorded, never failing to give me goose bumps every time I hear it. Its beautifully textured simple melodies and unity of concept transport you to another place. Its beaty is moving on a supernatural strength. There is something very other worldly about this album especially with its use of drones on the background. The playground recordings on The Inmost Light Itself because are mixed so high give a very eerie feel to the music, but also become an integral part of it. This album definitely makes most of the acoustic music made by singer songwriters nowadays look silly and insignificant. You don't need to believe in the message of David Tibet's or his Christian beliefs to be in awe of his sincere and very convicted vocal delivery. This album is timelessness itself.
