The second in a series of ten LPD reissues on Caciocavallo, this is the complete version of the Play It Again Sam release from 1990.

Another classic from Ka-Spel, just can't get enough of LPD! Great work!

Don't be a fool and pay $26.00 for this, it's not rare or out of print, LPD's are available at Soleilmoon's website for $10.99 brand new, remastered, sounds better than the old copies. Also available at Strange Fortune's website.

The Legendary Pink Dots is a minoritary band. If they had made their music in the 70's they would be, I think, now as classic and mythical as Pink Floyd or The Velvet Underground. But since they made their music in the 80's and 90's, an age in which easy listening is what people prefer and it's very difficult for good innovating bands to become as successful (I think that if pink Floyd or The beatles would be bands of this age they wouldn't be as legendary as they are), The Legendary Pink Dots is then a selective band.
And they are one of the best bands that ever put their feet on the earth. They defy styles and genre: they can be psychedelic, industrial, pop, rock, atmsopheric, acoustic, etc... it's a band that doesn't get trapped in a monodimensional music. They truly innovate and push frontiers forward.
Once said this, it happens that 'Crushed Velvet apocalypse' is maybe one of their best (and this is a difficult task since they have about 30 albums!) It's one of their more psychedelic albums, every song is a jewel in its own style.
'I love you in your tragic beauty' is a perfect ay to begin the album. An eminently acoustic song, the lyircs and singing are so so good while the fragile acoustic guitar completes a magnificent song. Melancholy, sadness turned into a song.
'The green gang' is quite another thing. With a 4 minute long instrumental intro, in which electronics are combined with sitars and guitars perfectly, this is a very good song. Psychedelia starts to make its appearance in the album.
'Hellsville' is a very disturbing song. Electronic, creepy chorus, you think you'll hate it but it sticks to your head.
'Hellowe'en' is a short instrumental piece, a good interval.
'The safeway' is very good. Ritualistic singing, disturbing words, good chorus.

New to the dots? This is perhaps their most accessible album. CVA reaches into the melodic past and foreshadows what is to come. A blend of cascading, musical brilliance and impending doom creates a mental image both astounding and terrifying. LPD is THE music to play alone. If you are fond of depth in your music, buy this cd!

One of my favourite LPD discs, CVA is an excellent journey into the world of Edward Ka Spel .This disc marked a change in sound for the band away from electronics and toward more conventional instruments but loses nothing for that.In fact the palette of sounds is simply broader giving the songs a wonderful depth .
This version contains an extra four tracks from the "Princess Coldheart" EP.
The sound quality of the recording and the arrangements really do these great songs justice and it sounds to me as though the participants are enjoying their work. love the cover art too.

I got into the Dots after seeing a show of theirs last year, and this is a highly recommendable cd. The ninth track, Princess Coldheart, was mindblowing live and it's still got the same effect on the recording. #3, Hellsville, is another great song, an all around great album. If you're looking for something halfway between gothic and industrial, I'd say this is a sure bet. It's beyond classification, vaguely Floyd-esque, but so much beyond.
