Insane Clown Posse – Halls Of Illusions

This rabid, mad, wicked rock/hip-hop song is half horror-comedy movie and half awesome musical performance. Since this style is all about the lyrics, I’ll start by saying that this is one little sadistic gem. Contrasting ideal dream worlds with terrible realities, the merciless writing goes through a violent story, infesting it with dark humor coming from the blackest pits of hell.

It’s all delivered by a solid melody, diverse and very well-orchestrated (I’d say it rises far above the average hip-hop instrumentals). Guitars, percussion, vocal distortions, weird sounds of all sorts, samples – everything is brought together with excellent production values.

The song comes from what I consider to be Insane Clown Posse’s best album. I’d be surprised if ICP’s music won’t summon at least a smile from the inner insane clown waiting deep inside… some of us?

“Ticket please, thanks, walk through the door
Into the Halls Of Illusions, visit yours
And see what coulda and shoulda and woulda been real
But you had to fuck up tha whole deal

Lets take a walk down the hallway
It’s a long way it, it takes all day!

And when you get to tha end, you’ll find a chair
With straps and chains, we slap you in there
Lock you down tight so you can’t move a thread
And pull your eyelids up over your head
Cuz you’re about to witness an illusionary dream
It’s just too bad it ain’t what it seems

[…]

Great Milenko, wave your wand
Don’t look now, your life is gone
This is all because of you
What you got yourself into

[…]

And that reminds me man, hey ya gotta call:
Watch your step to Hell…it’s a long fall!”
