Wait! Come back! This isn't a reissue of that U2 album, I promise! This is David Axelrod's second album first release in 1969, and the sequel to Songs of Innocence. Like his first album, this is a lushly orchestrated interpretations of the poetry of one William Blake. As the name might suggest, this time Axelrod was concerned with the darker aspects of life.

9/10 Tom Customer review, 16th August 2018

David Axelrod's second album of William Blake interpretations continues in the funky orchestral vein as debut album Songs of Innocence but with a noticeably darker tone (reflecting the shift in tone between the two sets of Blake poems). Axelrod's unusual fusion of funk, rock, orchestra, and exotica have made him a favourite of crate-diggers to the point that it's old-hat to sample him, but listening to these two records in full remains a true joy, to be swept away to an era in which this kind of music was being made by giant record companies at the tail-end of the 60s. Halfway cheesy and halfway funky as hell, there's still magic in these records even if the Blake-connection is tenuous at best!
