In between shows, the group began enthusiastically recording, and the resulting album, Hologram of Baal, proved to be their best in years. This was partially because the set captured the intensity (musical and emotional) of their live shows - "Louisiana," for example, quivers with quiet energy; but also because of the vibrant soundscapes that the band were then creating in the studio. One of the loveliest of these is "Tranquility"; in contrast, the more abstract "Ricochet" bounces around pop in the most unnerving fashion.

Hologram of Baal' (ignore the pretentious title) sees them at their ion-like best. If you like the sonic soundscapes created by artists such as Eno, Doves, Echo and The Bunnymen etc. you will adore this album. Lyricist and principal writer Steve Kilbey displays his usual melancholic, wry, observational style with regard to vocal delivery and lyrics. The guitars are, as on every Church album, superbly dynamic and tasteful. The songwriting is strong, and the vibe is wintry and introspective

All the great songs and lyrics from the "Hologram of Baal" album ont he Web's largest and most authoritative lyrics resource. The Church is an Australian rock band formed in Sydney in 1980. Initially associated with new wave and the neo-psychedelic sound of the mid 1980s, their music later became more reminiscent of progressive rock, featuring long instrumental jams and complex guitar interplay.

The insert for the CD was designed as interchangeable, with 10 separate sleeve designs created by fans. As with Hologram of Baal, a tour followed the album's release, but a new drama hit the band mid-tour in New York City when Kilbey was arrested for trying to purchase heroin. The band was forced to improvise a set after he failed to show, with Willson-Piper covering vocals. A night in jail and a day's community service on the Manhattan subway were Kilbey's only punishment.
