The staff of our Facebook page would like to apologize to the broad public. Recent updates to the platform have made it so that, in attempting to share a meme or post or what-have-you to one's personal profile, the first option automatically loaded is to post the content to a page that one administrates. If one is used to the default option being one's own profile (as it used to be), they click away without a second thought, and are surprised to be alerted that the content has been posted to their page instead.
As popular (or unpopular) as a sentiment may be, JCS Zone does not take sides in politics, and will not be posting potentially volatile content that may alienate fans of the show from all backgrounds. To that end, any posts mistakenly shared to this profile by one of our muscle-memory-click-happy admin have been removed. We are sorry if anyone on the page was offended by the mistaken sharing; it was not our intention to do so. That does not change our personal beliefs about these posts, whether they align with them or not (there are three admin who don't always agree on the website, let alone politics), but we recognize this is not the proper space for them, and they will not appear in future.
People have said to me, almost from the time I first started annoying them about it: "Gibson, if you like Jesus Christ Superstar so much, you should write a book about it one day." I've always laughed...
Never ones to wait very long for the smoke to clear from the cash-in starting pistol, Hallmark (which worked pretty much hand-in-hand with Pickwick) delivered an effort that proves really quite interesting and listenable. A small combo and brass (most noteworthy for its well-timed stabs on “Heaven On Their Minds,” but it adds a soulful touch to all of the tracks) ably lay down the backing, as Martin Jay (veteran of the Kingsway Youth Opera Company recording) gives it a full Gillan when it comes to Jesus’ screams. Quality tracks include an excellently choppy “Damned For All Time,” a great pass at “Superstar,” and a surprising slightly psych-ey and percussion-driven take on “The Temple” that keeps the drama built up by the fuzz guitar riff going throughout the track.
