Note that while this CD is compatible with any CD player, it will NOT work on a turntable unless you count spinning around and getting scratched up as working. But, like, duh.

My fate is sealed inside the fiber
that closes the loop.
This cycles and cycles
as if bound in chains of muscle memory
and ferments in feedback on feedback
and is born of itself an entity.
My depth is concealed in integument
layering thicker upon the complexity within.
This sheath, maturing incrementally,
offers less and less to evince its profundity,
its hearty pulse ultimately preserved under thick skin:
a rhythm headache in winding halls.
My embryo ossifies,
my development is dashed.
And so crystallizes this PIT:
inert in my lurching belly;
the pièce de résistance of this seeping gravity well;
the dormant tension of coils under bovine crush;
the sheer mass.
But as it congeals it intones an appeal,
You who believe you're entitled to feel
your god-given birthright is under attack?
these are the words of a wall wailing back:
I AM THE SCREEN ONTO WHICH YOU PROJECT
THE DISSONANCE BETWEEN LOST AND BEREFT
YOUR RIGHTEOUS TEARS HAVE LONG SEEPED THROUGH THE CRACKS
THIS IS THE SOUND OF A WALL CRYING BACK
ONLY THE CHOSEN CAN CHOOSE TO ACCEPT
PEACE AS A PAYMENT ON SANCTIFIED DEBT
THOSE WHO STILL CHOOSE TO PROLONG THIS TRAVAIL
WILL WITNESS THE WAILS AS WALL'S SPIRIT FAILS
This is the pulse of the pit that I can't
shake as a cold shiver shoots in the heat
up from the base of my spine to my neck;
gnashing of teeth, rhythm locked on repeat:

This Canterbury-infused record has a lot of the qualities that I love in prog rock: structured yet unpredictable songwriting; production that, unlike much new prog, does not sound like something recorded in an aseptic vacuum chamber; many different instruments that work together favouring empathic synergy over aimless technical noodling; different layers and moods seamlessly woven together; the rare capacity of not taking itself too seriously; and much more. A bold and inventive masterwork. muschiosauro
