CD Reviews
Review by Gary Hill
Most of the lyrics to this album are poems written by the late horror writer H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937). The music is fusion-tinged progressive rock.
Part One
Review by Gary Hill
The first album from French proggers Halloween, this disc is great prog rock album with lots of varying textures. Musically it falls into a more symphonic mellower range with hints of such bands as Alan Parsons Project, Genesis and Emerson Lake and Palmer.

Review by Lisa Palmeno
A bit of an editorial comment needs to be made here. Since the person you see as "ed." - that's "editor" not "Ed" - is the author of this book, this is a bit awkward in a way. I had considered not covering this book at MSJ, but that seems unfair as we do provide promotion in the form of reviews for other authors.
