The Great Distortion review in Raised by Gypsies

distortion cd inner + tape.jpg…. it all makes sense now. This is in space. Something which we have not seen the likes of yet is destroying the crew of this spaceship and there is nothing anyone can do to stop it. All we can do is witness the horrors as this audio was sent back to Earth somehow. At least, that’s how I hear this and it’s better than anything Hollywood has done for quite some time….. “the Great Distortion” tape released by Aphelion Editions is reviewed here by American blog Raised by Gypsies. Many thanks to Joshua Macala for the words.
