Boomkat Product Review:
Released in 2005, The Getty Address was album number four from Dirty Projectors.

"The Getty Address is an album-length narrative inspired by Aztec mythology, the Eagles, and the 9/11 aftermath. It is a sprawling, layered glitch opera about Don Henley, leader of the aforementioned country/soft-rock group, and it was recorded over the course of almost two years, in three different states, with more than twenty-five people.

The result is a captivating American song cycle that recreates the marriage of African and European music in their pure, unbastardized forms..."
