Driftwood is less wooden. Prolapsed Haemorrhoids less painful.,
This review is from: For Emma Forever Ago (Audio CD)
I note that there are eight other reviewers, at this time, who have a similiar opinion to mine. A number of others seem to appreciate some sad sack sitting in his dad's cabin doling out this nonsensical tripe.
I have been quite critical of a number of similiar "artists", Steve Adey, Mark Hollis, Tindersticks etc and have been humerously slated by their acolytes. Well I found their insults and rants funny!! Apparently I am an idiot according to a fellow reviewer called 'Beasley' because I dared to give Steve Adey a bad review! TUT TUT. Heaven help us!!
What all these artists have in commom is that they are fanatically worshipped by navel gazing, morose and arrogantly self opinionated new age types who I honestly believe are being paid to write such glowing reviews. Plus I bet they have personal hygene problems too!! Just my theory!
I am a fan of ambient music, Rock, Folk, whatever and adore artists as far flung as The Blue Nile, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Muse, Miles Davis, Wye Oak, etc. I believe I have a pretty good ear for what talent sounds like.
This is not talented, just a poor attempt at reproducing rude bodily sounds or torturing animals.
Read my fellow reviewers who give this album a low rating, listen to their thoughts on the subject and seriously reconsider purchasing.
