"What is done out of love always takes place beyond good and evil."
-- Friedrich Nietzsche
A journey from hell to heaven in thirteen tracks. The tracks are chronologically ordered by the time they were written and recorded.
In May 2010, Sylvia and I started raising funds from our friends and fans so we could take time off to produce the 11th paniq album, then known under the project name "The Most Remarkable Album On This Entire Planet". Unexpectedly, the crowdfunding was a huge success, so work started in August and ended in November as planned. This is what we came up with.
