      It almost feels sacreligious to comment on any of Axelrod's capitol masterpieces, but the third in the trilogy it is the most misunderstood. There are lyrics sung by a choir unlike the first two which are entirely instrumental. However the production is so steller, the story it tells so gripping, it requires the most thorough listen to attain its sweet rewarding fruits. Do not sleep on this one.

      By the way the original inner sleeve with the gas-mask man is just two sweet.
