An absolutely amazing record. Helios brings in Jerry Page (Crust, Bontempi Brothers) to fill in on 2nd guitar and add even more dimension to Helios already 3D sound. Jerry plays guitar and a ton of other instruments as noted below, including the electric doorspring! Jeff Pinkus, (Butthole Surfers, Daddy Longhead, Honky) who has played on Helios records in the past, joins to contribute his signature bass playing as well as some banjo work. Helios is re-united with Fabienne Shine for the first time in over 20 years and she contributes some amazing vocals including a cover of the Velvet Underground's "All Tomorrow's Parties." "The Things They Showed Me," originally included on the Dossiers 2 compilation years ago, now it gets it's rightful place on a full length Helios record with even a little extra added to the beginning. There's even some theremin on this which adds a great, trippy, weird, sort of scifi movie effect to the record. Great album!
