Wonderful spoken word doused in delicious synth from the electronic goddess Ruth White. This album while having an incredibly eerie satanic vibe, is actually based on book of somewhat grim poetry book by Charles Baudelaire. Controversial author and poet of his mid 19th century era, his works were banned multiple times and released in several censored forms. Uncensored for ages, Ruth White reminds us even further through her wonderful and quite sexy readings of Charles works just how wonderful uninhindered creative expression is. You don't need to be a literature buff to enjoy this album, be you a casual listener, some goth who wants to impress some pals, or a real satanist, this is the album for you. I never knew how much I loved spoken word albums until I started playing this almost more than my other stuff. If you've been paying attention, you get the point I love the readings, but what about the synth? It's just excellent! This album uses stuff I haven't really heard in any of the other synth albums out there. Really deep echoey keys that sound incredibly enchanting. When you're listening to this album, thanks to the synths setting up such a wonderful ambience, you may very well be in the 19th century at the most beautiful victorian mansion imaginable. Good albums make you happy, great albums make you ecstatic, but wonderful albums take you places you've never been. Flowers of Evil is a wonderful album.
