I will persevere, although the phone may ring at any time. At which point I may or may not have to converse in Mormon. This involves a caffeine purge and saying "heck" and "gosh" a lot.

Hello everyone! Welcome.

This album is astonishingly good. I think it stands shoulder to shoulder with most of the classic era.

And as always, a special hello to the lovely and non-hammerheaded Kath.

She has other uses for hammers. Most of them involve me on the receiving end.

An instrumental to open, and then into The Nails from the Hands of Christ.

A very good song, but I think the album gets better and better as it progresses.
