Beasties: A Sci-Fi Rock Opera - Good Old Friend Review
"Beasties: A Sci-Fi Rock Opera" is a story about a rock band that finally has a hit record after years of touring, performing a free concert in Central Park that attracts a huge crowd. But, without telling the band, the promoter sold a sponsorship to a corrupt politician, Dick T.Raitor, who interrupts the concert in an attempt to hijack the audience's attention. The hero, Grā (pronounced: Gray), currently a stagehand and a retired singer, is affected by an alien intervention from an otherworldly impulse—which infuses within him a schizophrenic identity with special powers—to make humanity aware of their inner Beasties. Two intertwined rock and roll love stories, one between humans and one between the universe and the sci-fi rock known as earth, to save the planet from climate destruction by societal corruption"
Absolutely wonderful! The musicianship , structure and production on this is fantastic! This is the sound of rock pros coming together and creating a masterpiece! This sounds like Rush and Meat Puppets had a baby and created something otherworldly! This track takes you to another dimension with its colorful tones and immense groove. Very technical work! The story telling is just out of this world , on another level. combining elements of a whole sci-fi universe within this concept album/project is brilliant. I reccomend it.
