This record owes more than a little debt to Led Zeppelin - starting with a virtual note-for-note cover of Zep's version of Blind Willie Johnson's "Nobody's Fault But Mine" and running through nearly the whole course of the album.
Myrrh was heavily involved in the creation of this "product" - and members of the band have frequently mentioned their annoyance with the process.
A more cohesive record than the last few had been, noting that all output since 1987's epopnymous release had been of the hodge-podge variety - more like collections than anything else.
