    King in the Realm of Rain
    Do you want to live a life of anguish and sorrow? Do you want to visit the kingdom of sadness and pain? If the answer is positive then Mind Bomb is created just for you. Musically the album is fantastic: Johnny Marr on lead guitar, drummer guru David Palmer at drums, saxophone and clarinet, trombone and oboe, Hammond organ and harmonica - and all this plenitude is just a background to Matt Johnson's tortured vocals of Christian martyr. Lyrically Mind Bomb is even better, like some prisoner of conscience Matt Johnson attacks us with eternal questions: "We are pushed onto our knees to worship or to damn? Those are the rules of religion" or calls us like a siren: "I am the lighthouse. I am the sea. I am the air that you breathe. Gravitate to me". And the hymn of lost love "Kingdom of Rain" sung in a duet with Sinead O'Connor is a special delight: "Our bed is empty. The fire is out. And all the love we've got to give has all spurted out. There's no more blood. And no more pain. In our kingdom of rain". So Mind Bomb remains one of the brightest stars in the skies of intellectual rock.
