2019 Best of Metal: #7 The Claypool Lennon Delirium-South of Reality

Release date:  2/22/2019

Origin:  El Sobrante, CA and New York City, NY

Personnel:  Les Claypool-bass/vox, Sean Lennon-guitar/vox and Paulo Baldi-drums

This album is exactly what you would expect of the longtime mastermind of Primus and the son of John Lennon.  It’s a trippy proggy masterpiece.  There are influences from Primus, the Beatles psychedelic era, Pink Floyd, maybe a little bit of early Porcupine Tree and all wiped down with a sheen of the very best of 70s era prog.  This is one for the mushroomheads in the audience.  Put it on and feel yourself EXPAND.
