5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the idiots....this is great!, 4 April 2013
This review is from: The Terror (Audio CD)
I can understand, if Do You Realize is your favourite Lips tune why some fans may be offended by the sound and songs of this album. The one star reviews are a bit harsh though.
Its dense, distorted and doesn't really contain many traditional song structures. It's obvious Wayne and Steven had a bit of a tough one last year for various reasons and this is the outcome. I think its a great piece of work. If you like Zaireeka or Embryonic i can't see how you can hate this.

it is also a bit harsh to dismiss people as idiots for merely expressing an opinion....
I wouldnt dream of describing you as an idiot for liking The Terror!!!! Hats off to you i wish i liked it i really wanted to
and 'Do you realize' is not my favourite Lips track - not by some distance.

you're right, i shouldn't call people idiots, just can't stand 1 star reviews for something which obviously deserves at least two!

takes a few listens ..and is a challenge at first.in this day and age of instant gratification everyone wants to love something instantly or they just dismiss it out of hand..like a lot of masterpieces you have to give the TERROR time...personally i think its the best and most beautiful record I've heard in many years...an absolute masterpiece

dubub - i AM an idiot you were right - ive had a rare opportunity to listen to the Terror for an entire day on repeat - no wife kids or work - i'm starting to get it slowly - it has to be listened to in its entirety - you can't dip into it. I'm learning to love it....
