Pale Divine : Thunder Perfect Mind

The release of Pale Divine's 'Thunder Perfect Mind' was one of the community's musical milestones back in '01. In a year of great albums, 'TPF.' was first among equals, combining the influence of early 70s underground blues metal with old-school, Maryland-style doom to create something fresh and amazing, something that tapped into the spiritual, manifesting the beliefs of the group in musical form.

Unbelievably, the album was out of print until psycheDOOMelic stepped up and reissued it. Good for them, but more importantly good for you, if you somehow missed out on picking this one up the first go 'round. For a special treat, psycheDOOMelic has added a couple of live cuts, 'Amplified' (my all-time PD fave) and 'Pale Divine' (no slouch) in case you needed any incentive. Although my CD collection is crying out for more space, I'll be happy to add in this second copy, just because it's one of the finest albums the stoner/doom community has ever produced and I want it in all it's iterations.

In case you desire a more rounded picture, here's my review from a few years ago:
