Bob Drake's third solo album is his most deranged and (consequently) delightful. The theme of The Skull Mailbox (And Other Horrors) is scary stories, the kind where ghosts remain discreet and fear is palpable for unknown reasons – the kind HP Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe wrote. In 43 minutes, the singer/songwriter finds a way to storm through 27 songs that range from warped folk tunes to full-fledged (although very short) avant-prog pieces.
