225 Sing to God by Cardiacs

Sing to God, the 1996 double album by Cardiacs, wants to defy classification, but we're crazy enough to tackle it and try

Our latest requested review might be our most challenging listen ever, 1995′s Sing to God by Cardiacs - our first double album (no, Use Your Illusion doesn’t count). With almost two decades under their belts, Cardiacs unleashed this behemoth not just in length, but density. The songs are packed with instrumentation, and many flying by at a breakneck pace, churning twisted pop with equal parts psychedelia, Britpop, bombast and manic energy. We haven’t heard much like this, and we’re guessing you haven’t either.
