#77 - Sigur Ros - Takk...



I prefer Agaetis Byrjun, but what the hell. BOTH are good.

I used to like this until I found better music.

What a frightful din!

Some goblin, gnome or whatever they have in Iceland, was listening to Brian Eno's Apollo Atmospheres & Soundtracks while his child was hitting the toy xylophone and his misses came into the room singing like that Nordestran person. He then wondered if he mixed these sounds with some imitation strings and the banging noise one hears when a boat's keel bangs against the jetty - it might actually sound credible.
"Se Lest" my cat waling sounds more attractive - neither can I understand
"Andvari" sounds like The Blue Nile.

Given my tastes in music I ought to like this, but I don't.

Thank you Nige for letting me hear Takk without having wasted groschen.

Half of these reviews could be from him.

#76 - Pixies - Surfer Rosa



The more pissed-off, drug-crazed older brother of Doolittle. Still very fun.

Quote:
Surfer Rosa is what it would sound like if Mike Tyson, Helen Keller, Pauly Shore, and a random homeless guy picked up instruments for the first time and decided to record an album. Was there a single actual musician in this band? I have never in my life heard a band that was so utterly, apocalyptically devoid of actual talent.

It doesn't matter how influential this band was or how popular they were (or are) in college frat houses. Stupid music is stupid music, period, and The Pixies' attempts at writing 'music that's so bad that it's actually kind of good' failed miserably. Unless of course you think lyrics like "This song is about a superhero named Tony!" are the stuff of brilliance.

Silliness is not an art form. This band was a crime against rock.

Oh, totally. I don't think he cares enough to do a Prince review, so I haven't really seen his name pop up yet. Soon though.

I love listening to a new album, then going to see if Axver's reviewed it or not. It brings joy to my day :cornflakes:

I would have gone with AB and Takk, and both high on my list.

And that is EXACTLY why I love the Pixies. That review is so true, except for the last two lines. And for the record: "This song is about a superhero named Tony!" is fucking brilliant.
