Quick make-notes of the letdowns.
The new Front Line Assembly album is boring. Actually there’s nothing else to say about it. Well, maybe that Jimmy Urine’s Rock Me Amadeus is just, whaaat the fuck. It’s a joke that I don’t dig.
And the new Ladytron record, I don’t even get that, it’s like a bad production. The tracks are half totally boring, half okayish. Strange choice of tracklisting so that it becomes more interesting in the second half. But the sound quality of the whole thing is just a mess, it sounds like some vintage vinyl listened through an earplug. I also have a feeling that probably I got tired of them in the absence since we last met and would not listen to it anymore if I came across it as new today. That’s a strange thought.
