melton I do not deserve to review Diamanda Galás, she's too awesome. I found out about her in avant garde/experimental music catalogs in the early 2000's and when I listened to her I was so delighted with how unusual and crazy good her vocals, playing, overall musicianship and passion for art and vision is on a different level, I will always respect her, what an inspiration
Favorite track: Insane Asylum.

Jascha Narveson I've owned a copy of this album for years, but I bought it as a used CD and I always thought "I should send Diamanda Galas ten bucks for this, because I love it so much" - and now I can!

Even if the first track was all that was on the album it would be worth it.
Favorite track: My Love Will Never Die.
