Pengo - Climbs the Holy Mountain

Buddyhead

Unfortunately, this one kind of went over my head... which is actually why I respect it. This album is pengo's fifth live performance, a performance accompanying the first 31 minutes of Alejandro Jodorowsky's film, "the Holy Mountain." Without the visuals in tact, it is somewhat difficult to really get a feel for this, or even enjoy it for that matter. me being a score composer dork, it starts to make more sense to me once the music reaches it's halfway point (and it's climax) at 15 minutes. i admire this and consider it to be art. but i honestly do not recommend it unless you are a severe film nerd or you meditate.
