I'm a music lover, I do love this!!!,
This review is from: Metal Machine Music [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Most certainly not the worst record ever, no matter what the other review says (at least the only other one as I write). BUT it is a noise record and if that genre is not for you then caveat emptor if you're tempted to try it. There were noise records before this and there have been far better since this (Merzbow probably being one possible pinnacle) but it was definitely one of the first to be brought into the mainstream by a popular artist. I think Lester bangs described it somewhat tongue-in cheek as the "greatest album ever made in the history of the human eardrum" - wouldn't go that far but if you have an open (musical) mind I'd recommend this album highly.
