I don't know why so many seem to find the acapella albums so creepy. I guess they are, in a way, but I find "Blues Turned Black" from I Threw You Away and "I Was a King" from The Gone Wait to be worlds scarier than anything on the spoken word albums. They are really despondent. The lack of normal tonality confuses the consciousness with its alienating nature, almost like gouging the flesh, and the dark lyrics are like salt or old 40-wieght oil being rubbed into the wounds. Very effective..
