The acclaimed singer-songwriter is kicking off a bold new chapter in his career with new band HIEROPHANT and a mind-blowing 70-minute opus that completely obliterates genre distinctions. Narrated by Stephen King, this unprecedented work, twanging dobros coexist with Nintendo chipsets; brutally assaultive passages alternate with moments of unabashed tenderness, and surreal Floydian soundscapes float above smoking slabs of whiskey-soaked southern soul. It s an electrifying thrill ride across a dense, dark and gloriously decadent musical landscape.
3.5/4 Stars --People Magazine
Brilliant ... one wild, paranoid, anti-establishment mash-up of psychedelic theater --Los Angeles Daily News
Genre: Awesome. Okay, lets call it a concept album even though that doesn't even do it justice as to how much I love this album. --Stereogasm
