I've Heard More Pleasant Noises Coming From A Cat on Fire
on 20 October 2010
I don't quite know how I did it but I somehow got it into my head that I wanted to get this album. I think I must have heard part of a track and thought "Ooh, that sounds quirky". Quite often I buy an album that I know almost nothing about and end up being pleased with the results, I thought that might be the case this time. Sadly it wasn't.
There isn't a single redeeming feature about the "music" on this CD. No-body that appears on the album can sing and it's questionable to whether they can really play their instruments. Most of the time it sounds like they're having a go for the first time or simply kicking them down a steep hill.
The song writing isn't up to much either, if the songs were actually written. Again, it sounds like they sat in the studio, hit record and just "sang" the first thing that came to mind.
I'm sure this album must appeal to someone out there, I just can't imagine who. Deaf people maybe. Apart from them, maybe toddlers who are too young to understand any better. Avoid this album at all costs unless you happen to be driving towards it in a steamroller.
