An album made into a desert epic, this is one you’ll have to let your mind take over for. Concept albums aren’t quite as popular as they used to be and they’re rarely as fully realized and cohesive as Glossolalia, which genuinely sounds like a lost man in a desert dealing with grand questions of God and Fate. It’s a big album despite its small origins in the bedroom of an Indiana-native and it’s that kind of ambition that’s simply hard not respect.
Glossolalia follows the story of a preacher traveling by airplane who crashes into the desert, leaving him the only survivor. As a result, the preacher must wander the desert in search of food, water, and civilization. Along the way he questions the religion that brought him there and the God who may, or may not, exist.
