"A raw cry from the dark night of one man's soul. Cloistered away from the popular culture of 1982, rural Illinois priest Tony Trosley painted a pastoral refraction of early 1970s Laurel Canyon watercolors with this stand-alone set of songs. Openhearted and naively psychedelic, Deep Night was recorded during a single pre-dawn marathon, and mixed live-to tape in an isolated chapel. Cobbled together out of local players to help fill out this ethereal soundscape, Trosley's band brought an earnest but bluntly unsophisticated backdrop to his phaser-drenched 12-string guitar. The Sixth Station -- named for a grim New Testament tableau in which Veronica washes the tortured face of Jesus -- managed to avoid overtly Christian themes in favor of a mystical humanism that resonates timelessly, and to any sort of listener. This Deep Night is as profound and eerie as the images conjured by its title."
