A rough measure of how "Lovecraftian" the work is:
- SSS__ (Three Tentacles: Lovecraftian)
Apparently, this is about as "Lovecraftian" as a musical parody of a loose adaptation of a Lovecraft story can get....
Note: This rating is not intended as a measure of quality, merely of how closely related to Lovecraftian "Weird" fiction the work is.
