Aside from this being the complete collection, I'm just going to review First Utterance for right now:
First Utterance is an album unlike any other that has surfaced magically upon this planet earth. No other album can surpass the height of creepiness that this album has already set.
Comus' band name was named after the 17th century John Milton's poem of Comus, in which its main theme was of a creature named Comus who seduces virgin maidens is also part of the the album's basis for songs such as "Diana" and "Song to Comus". If themes of demonic creatures taking away the pureness of young virgins wasn't enough, Comus also has songs on this album that deals with things such as murder in "Drip Drip" and even mental illness in "The Prisoner".
Roger Wootton has very haunting and unique vocals on this album that could bring shivers slowly down the back of your spine. He sings with power and emotion as if he really was the creature Comus and is trying to bring us into his cave in which he has resided his whole life. After Wooton brings you into his cave, the rest of the band members are there, just waiting to violate anything decent about yourself and devour you whole using nothing but dull forks and their dirty hands. While they feast on you, Bobby Watson, only sixteen I believe when the album was released, adds on to Wootton's already creepy singing with her powerful, but yet so soothing, voice to ease your pain while you're dying fast in the band member's mouths and stomachs.
The album should be widely appreciated and more known, but it probably wouldn't appeal to most people, which is a shame really. Anyone who likes any form of folk music must listen to this near perfect masterpiece.
