    As a longtime, dues-paying Friend of City Park, it took me a while to get on board with the effort to save the wild public land that City Park CEO Bob Becker and the Bayou District Foundation nonprofit want to turn into a high-end golf course.

The back-and-forth of editing and label and band dissatisfaction ultimately disbanded Sleep, though the album is considered a metal masterpiece, a tedious-but-rewarding monster of dark, otherworldly conjuring through its mammoth performance.
