The word "complicated" just got a totally new meaning for me, because never have I listen and tried (!) to review something so complicated like this.
You now might think, "Ohh what a loser, can't even review a W.A.S.P. album", but hey, try to do it yourself, it's not as easy as it seems to be.

Rating: 8 This album for me, is one of only two W.A.S.P. albums (The other being their debut) that come close to touching their two classics ''The Headless Children'', and ''The Crimson Idol". Its just prevented from being up there with them by being a touch overlong, and therefore contains a small amount of filler when those all time great albums had none. I also much prefer "The Rise" over "The Demise" from the 2 ''Neon God'' albums. Songs like the stinging first real track ''Wishing Well", and the painfully haunting "What I'll Never Find", are among Blackie's finest compositions, and bring the band close to their previous greatness. Other highlights are the mesmerising "Asylum #9", and the thundering rocker "X.T.C. Riders". In fact the latter track is hampered only by the fact that the drums literally play the same beat throughout the whole song, with no fills whatsoever. This is especially perplexing when you consider that Frankie Banali is the man behind the kit! Maybe he'd began to lose some of his chops by this point, I dunno...lol

This is IMO one of W.A.S.P.'s better albums, and definitely the best W.A.S.P. album since ''The Crimson Idol''. Not quite a classic, but its a great album nonetheless.

Good album but there is no 80's touch seems Blackie is lost somewhere and he search way beck to 80's .... Babylon is 80's style
I like this album but disagree its same like opening 2

There shood be Neo God Part 3 --- something
