This implies that the beast is Rome under its two 1 st century dynasties.
If the beast is cast into the Abyss at the death of Nero at the end of the Caesar Dynasty, this implies that it is not cast into the Abyss again until the end of the Flavian Dynasty A. The 2 most significant events of the eschaton are the fall of Jerusalem, the whore of Babylon, A.

As stated above the beast and the whore of Babylon are not the same. In fact, if Rome fell in A. When people heard his voice they thought of The Lovin' Spoonful. And the decision to keep on making music in the same name was bound to be a mistake. Songs like "Amazing Air" and "The Prophet" sound like desperate attempts at making something different.
Even the song titles alone are ridiculous. It also has the worst lyrics to ever be featured in a song by the band.

They're downright embarrassing. Although it's arguably a stronger song, it feels a bit too preachy for my taste. It's almost like they tried to make it seem more important than it really is, and that applies to the album itself. They could've just started a new band, but that probably would've been too hard for them; it's obviously easier to make music with a recognizable name. Instead we're being brought a self-important mess with some humiliating attempts at psychedelic rock thrown into it.
The perfect example of this is the track "War Games". During its long and tedious seven minutes, there isn't a single note of music being played as far as I can tell. This one has Butler's name on it and I hope he regrets it to this very day. What the song consists of is a bunch of sound excerpts from different films.
About The Show
I would call it pretentious but I feel that it's not really necessary at this point. I wouldn't say that they're among The Lovin' Spoonful's best. But compared to the rest of the album, they're great. The songs are well-written and feel like solid pop songs. Joe Butler delivers two consistent vocal performances, something that has -- like many other things -- been dearly missed from this album. As stand-alone songs they're not that interesting, though. What could've ended on a high, in reality ended on a depressing low. It's one thing to conclude their career on a bad note, but this is embarrassing at times.
The Lovin' Spoonful ended with "Everything Playing" and that's how it should be. I consider "Revelation: Revolution '69" to be a bad spin-off that't hopefully going to disappear into obscurity. A happy ending would've been nice, of course. Sadly, The Lovin' Spoonful isn't the band to turn to if you want consistent music.
If you're expecting something fantastic you're going to be disappointed, and that's one thing that's actually consistent throughout their discography. There are couple of exceptions in "Daydream" and Everything Playing" check those out if you haven't and they won't disappoint you. But the thing about The Lovin' Spoonful is that they never tried to break any new ground. They wanted to have fun and, maybe, create a couple of hit singles in the process. And they sure did succeed in that department. There's always a nice atmosphere on their albums and that's why I decided to review all of their studio albums.
No, they won't be remembered like the bands mentioned above -- most people don't even know they exist -- but, that's why I like them. You have to discover them and appreciate them for what they were: a couple of musicians and a songwriting genius who somehow got lost in the folk community and ended up on the radio in the late 60's.
This review brings my The Lovin' Spoonful spree to an end. I thank all of you who actually took the time to read these and I hope I've inspired you to take a look at this band.

Because they do have some lost gems that are worth sifting through some of their albums for. I do recommend that you get a hold of one of their greatest hits collections if you can't stand the inconsistency that comes with The Lovin' Spoonful. It truly is a fantastic song, and perfectly defines what the band is all about. Tweet Recent reviews by this author. Christian Walz The Corner. Christian Walz Paint By Numbers.
