bitter and thoughtful The Headless Children was just an introduction to the things that followed three years later - the defining W.A.S.P. album [1992] reveals a dark concept story following life of fictional character Jonathan, reflecting a lot on Blackie Lawless' personal experience as well; it has stunned the heavy metal critics, let alone fans back in the year: the melodies, the lyrics, and the voice do a perfect job to follow the concept that is mostly on dismal side of emotional picture; British re-issue comes with a bonus disc and thirteen bonuses: B-sides, demo versions and live tracks from 1992's Donnington festival
