1.0 out of 5 stars Come on!, 17 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Hudson River Wind Meditations (Audio CD)
In my opinion this production is completely unworthy of its author. At least Metal Machine Music, by the uncompromisingly impersonal screechiness of it, and by the timing of its release within Reed's output, made a statement. The only parallel, as far as I can see, is that this release likewise challenges people to find something in it to talk about. You can find things to say about a uniformly grey expanse of concrete wall, if you sit in front of it for long enough, so maybe there is a genuine meditative exercise to be had from this after all! Seriously though, it really is quite remarkably poor.

Wow, talk about "missing the point".

Personally, I really like this album - though I admit I'm unlikely to play it as much as Berlin or Legendary Hearts. :)

Hi Rooksby.

I honestly think a point is nowhere to be found in Hudson River Meditations. The idea of it is pretentious and the outcome tedious. Maybe I'm in need of a few pointers as to where its merits lie.

Right, returning to it after a brief experiment: pulled up a Hudson River track on Youtube and showed it sincere patience. Zit - nada - dull. Then pulled up Youtube stream of Thursday Afternoon by Brian Eno (still rolling as I type). Wa-a-ay smarter, better space. It really is horses for courses, and that includes recognising the brilliance of songs like "Coney Island Baby", "Romeo and Juliet", "Street Hassle", "New Sensations", "Kill Your Sons"... etc etc. I hope, wherever he's gone, they're playing those tracks and not the Hudson River nonsense.
