    1. If you need escapist, cheery songs to simplistically lift your spirits and distract your mind from the tribulations of life - if you want a soothing voice (in terms of words AND sound) - LEAVE NOW WHILE YOU STILL CAN! YOU HAVE JUST ENTERED DIAMANDA GALAS TERRITORY!Diamanda Galas is a singer/musician/AIDS activist and (this I was unaware of until I read the book) former immunologist. Her work can rarely be described as sunny or cheerful, because it delves in dark areas, but there is an element of [...]


    2. "The Shit of God" takes every activist cell in my body and makes it question just what the fuck it thinks it's doing. "Not enough," says my brain. "Your activist cells are not doing enough" A beautiful collection of the written words used in her performances, the texts read like poetry. If you like Diamanda Galas, you should eat this book.


    3. Diamanda Galás, The Shit of God (High Risk Books, 1996)Printing a book of song lyrics and marketing it as poetry is a very risky proposition indeed. In my experience, maybe 20% of them work intermittently. I've only ever encountered one that worked from first page to last, Nick Cave's now woefully long out-of-print King Ink. (Cave's novels, by the by, are equally enchanting and come highly recommended at Goat Central.) The Shit of God, which covers Diamanda Galás' work from the earliest days ( [...]


    4. Honestly? i got it simply because it was an autographed copy.Unless you're knowledgeable about her Background, opinions, activism, and her rich musical history, you won't find anything sustainable here.but, if you're a devotee of Miss Galas, then, it's a must own.


    5. I absolutely adore Diamanda and think she is a genius but she too often resorts to childish name calling and humor becoming a teenager which hurts her overall tone. Some of her work is brilliant and others just incoherent blather unfortunately. She is amazing though nonetheless.


    6. Diamanda Galas's texts are interspersed with biblical passages, poetry from renowned writers and her own thoughts. The songs, searing, the lyrics, while may be deemed iconoclastic and groundbreaking struck me as something coming from someone who is really sad and lonely. I guess, that's just me.


    7. I was rather disappointed with this book as I assumed it was more a collection of essays and rants by Diamanda, but in fact, it's simply a collection of lyrics and photos with SOME extra text. It's perfect for the collector, but if you are wanting to better understand Diamanda's exquisite work, there isn't much in this book that can't be found on her albums.
