Abandon even the vestiges of your expectations. They have no place here in the garden of the Botanist.

Encapsulated in a fascinating fictional lore, the Botanist takes the familiar theme stemming from nature and the crimes against it by man and contorts it into the bizarre verdant realm of the entity known as the Botanist.

Um, okay.

Don't mind mz, he's just pullin' yer tit. I get the comparison - the zany nature and unorthodox approach. It's a parallel thing.

The weird thing is that I actually love the dulcimer etc, it's the vocals I can't stand.

That was my initial thought too, the gargled style still kinda of bother me, but I got used to it halfway through. Maybe another listen?

Yeah, maybe. But usually when the vocals are a turn off, I rarely change my mind. But it doesn't mean I won't give it another try.

Mikko Aspa is practically a self-confessed hebephile / pedophile (see his Nicole 12 power electronics project), and I think he published porn mags for a while too


I was better off not knowing that but it's not like you'll ever read this reply anyway...
