Such a fun track. It's like a crazy and drug-filled heavy metal fest with black metal vocals and synth on top. Lovely.
The chorus is so catchy goddamit.

Ugh I own the remastered version and for some unknown reason they thought it would be a good Idea to take the lead guitar out of that song along with the 2 solos! The original is just so much better! Grr

"What the fuck" basically describes all of Sigh's music properly

do not spoil the rest of their discography for me, although I personally don't expect ordinary music from sigh after that I've heard this album.

Great album. I don't know, if it can be considered their most experimental one, as all of them starting with Hail Horror Hail are quite experimental, but still I enjoy a lot their mix of space rock, metal and whatnot.

Been meaning to listen to this one forever and kept putting it off. What a spectacularly chill, creative, excellent album. I think I am still more drawn to the speed and highs/lows of their newer stuff, but I definitely see why this is such a classic.

Wow having gone through their full disco now, this is without doubt their magnum opus. I had second thoughts about this after Hangman's Hymn and Scenes From Hell. But God!, this is just flawless, not a single false note here. This album is near perfect. Sigh will never probably top this.

Love the keyboards

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here
