But if you don't deliver the goods, it's my right as an American to make fun of you. So here's a question: If Scientology is so golly-damned amazing and inspiring and helps you hone your inner artistic sensibilities, how did its bizarro founder, L. Rob Hubbard, ever produce such a shitty record entirely on his own?
From X-Ray Visions:
The picture on the cover of the Apollo Stars album shows a peculiarly grim-faced L. Ron Hubbard sitting before the controls of the mixing board, surrounded by his retinue, technical people and musicians.
Hubbard had spent tens of thousands of dollars to obtain the very best recording equipment, yet the Apollo Stars music on this album is awful, technically and musically ...
Apparently Hubbard did not understand the basics of mixing. The music on the album sounds as if he did the mix while listening through headphones with cotton in his ears, never bothering to listen to it through speakers.
Grab this while you can. It's so awful it must be heard to be believed.
