ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A chorus of sirens, a sheep's wardrobe, a spoonful of aspartame, a Jael to intoxicate you and drive a stake through your head while you sleep...

Prof. Jono Podmore

brilliant
Clever, witty, morally outraged lyrics over a complex and stylish and psychadelic journey through pop history. Like the Mamas and the Papas joined Crass in the Wu Tang's yard. The richness of the material is let down by the audio quality - to capture that kind of sound just takes gear that they obviously don't have. I love it.

Alexandra

Hmmm...
I don't even remember how I got to listen to them. It was on myspace and I got shocked and shaked.
Very rich and original with a strong message.
What else could I ask for...A band who surprises me and who talk to me!
Give it a try it worth it!

too much so good
so many ideas in one minute never happened in the last time. psychedelic sounds of strawberry fields with melancholic overstressed lost melodies and groovy postwave beats.

Haunting. The Van Allen Belt have perfected harmonies. This band is tight. I\'d like to hear this on unlimited repeat with 3 hits of LSD. I\'m really difficult to please and glad I found The Van Allen Belt.
