The album was a commercial disaster, suffering from a eye-wateringly expensive price tag, as well as being a concept triple-album released just as punk was becoming widely popular and influential.

This site is, frankly, a mess. I originally designed and wrote it in 1997 when I was working as a radio producer for NPR's London bureau.

'In nature, there are
neither rewards nor punishments -
there are Consequences.'
