Nobody does weird like those venerable veterans of creep-rock, The Residents. In their fourth decade of freaking out listeners, they show no signs of slowing down, as VOICE OF MIDNIGHT upholds their oddball (or eyeball, if you will) tradition. The album is based on 19th century German writer E.T. A. Hoffmann's famous story "Der Sandmann," about a man haunted throughout his life by the mythical Sandman. Presented in a musical theater format, with guest "actors" providing much of the vocal narrative, the album combines the story's classic themes with The Residents' own unique brand of disturbing sonic dementia.
