This review is from: The Drift (Audio CD)
This set of reviews seems to be more of a forum for people who have heard this album and who want to share their experience than a guide for people weighing up whether to buy it or not. Well I love Scott Walker and Tilt remains one of the most influential pieces of music I have ever heard but this album is, yes, four years later, still one that I just can't get through. I've tried it at night, on trains, on the M4, I've really made an effort but it simply doesn't make a difference. It just hurts my ears with its unending, tuneless meanderings. Tilt took a while before it revealed its near infinite musical depth, but this album has never got there for me and I fear it never will. Anyone who found another Tilt in there is a lucky person indeed.

ALL reviews of art are completely self indulgent and pointless. Choosing which music to listen to, which books to read etc, based on the opinions of others is foolish. Does anyone do it?
All the review sections are just 'who's with me' places. Thumbs up if you agree, thumbs down if you don't . That's all they are. Surprised you expected more as it can't be anything more, no matter how intelligent and well informed the reviewer.

I don't understand the difference between a music review, and a sharing of the experience of listening. Surely anyone reading a review is looking to see what experience people have had, so they can decide whether they want to try it?

I share your frustration at being unable to find much to warm to in this recent, all-too-rare despatch from a great artist. I have gone from finding it largely impenetrable to outright repellent - the sound of anguished, harrowing Godless 20th century theatre posing as music. For all the posturing of the intellectual hard-nuts on here I suspect even they will only ever ADMIRE this magnificently-wretched-sounding work, not LOVE it in the way I love Scott's earlier work, a way they would doubtless disparage as "backward-looking", "sentimental" etc etc

true reviews are pointless, futile - even worse, much worse are these stupid irritating comments - especially this one, its just awful, especially this last word coming up..yes, unnecessary why end on such a silly word ? no answer to it...integral
