If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be? Consider this koan, as BG & Co. sing you some stories from times gone by.
Welcome to the Bodhisattvas of Babylon, your English-language source for ridiculously copious, detailed, and biased information on Akvarium (Aquarium). Obsessed? You've come to the right place. Bodhi-curious? Let us be your guides. Seeking enlightenment through means which don't involve Russian rock? Well, it takes all kinds. Welcome.

Recorded (mostly) in the 80s but actually released in 2007, this is an attempt at historical revisionism, a Photoshopped album in which contemporary production is grafted onto seminal late 80s recordings from the chaotic post-Equinox, pre-Russian Album period. Shameless and—like most things that are truly shameless—wildly successful.
Does this pale horse presage the Apocalypse of Akvarium, or its rebirth?
