Album Notes
When the highest ethic is expediency, when the highest goal is power, when the torturers, murderers, and thieves seize the world and proclaim themselves the new good, who and what, exactly, are those now declared outside the law?

Crime and the Forces of Evil are a band of former superheroes, now supervillains - a change wrought not by their own actions, but by the inversion of the world around them. This is their story, and these are their songs.

Metallurgical Delight
I got to listen to Solarbird and her crews' initial tracks in the sooper secret workshop zone and wasn't terribly thrilled.

Fast forward to now, with the superzapper recharge and the kung fu pump up; I'm blown away by the growth and diversity of what is now a full fledged wild growth of gemstone artistry. I know other people are cluing in, but I still feel that nyah ha ha covetous glee of having found a true treasure at last in the adventure realm.

Okay, yeah I love this album. Bought the electronic version first elsewhere (didn't know it would be here) and have yet to be disappointed with the tenderness, insight, and hardened wisdom in this fightin' elf band showing us how original and poetic beauty can be encapsulated in a series of songs.

Had to get the physical object CD now, because well I want to show my allegiance to a fine show and a splendid display of crafting. This is just the icing on the cake for me, if you can imagine a super-nutrient lembas and miruvor cordial filling chef mastered by elfs with machine guns and mushroom grenades. No nonsense punk attitude, but with rarity and splendor. Cake, eat it too!

Doesn't sound like anything on what is now diddle-earth, though you might find parts at times recognizable. I get into the humor of abrusdity, which jumps to sweetness, then rage at boundaries crossed, and next you know you are wondering what you will find the next time you listen.
