John Fahey Vol. 4: The Great San Bernardino Birthday Party
There are several weak tracks on this album. Fahey betrays a rare moment of weakness in his experimentation with psychedelic studio tricks (reverse tracks, a very poor duet with a flute, etc.), but this is all redeemed by the title-track. "The Great San Bernardino Birthday Party" is one of the most haunting and gorgeous tracks ever recorded.

Brand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
I think I just went into this album with too high of expectations. The songwriting is pretty good, and the melodic elements are good also. I think it's just the pop-emoish vocals that still grate on me.
All right, though, I've come around a bit. This is a good album for what it is. There's no way I'm giving it higher than a 3 (2.8ish), and I still don't see what all the fuss is about, but it's not bad.

Animal Collective Merriweather Post Pavilion
AtavanHalen's hysterical celebration of the album's "yin-and-yang harmonies" and his obsequious praise of Animal Collective as "a group that is fearlessly eclectic and confrontingly experimental" must be viciously condemned. First of all, the group should not be congratulated for their "fearless eclecticism." They should rather be excoriated for their capriciousness. Secondly, AtavanHalen's excitement at these so-called "yin and yang" harmonies in Animal Collective's music can be seen as reflecting his own vapid eclecticism, since the yin and yang as a symbol of cosmic harmony is a typically dilettantish Western assimilation of an Eastern symbolism, thrilled by its exoticism.

Listen, I know this is Megadeth's best. It's just that Dave Mustaine's voice is SO TERRIBLE. I can appreciate how psychotic most of his songs are, but good God. Trust me, this is the highest rating I'm going to any Megadeth album. So it's going to be the only one I'll give a rating to.

I've never understood all the praise that surrounds this album. A very weak album, from start to finish. My opinion is, of course, partially influenced by the fact that I think that they're wholly unfit to borrow the name of their band from Stravinskii's immortal score.

Joan Baez (I Live) One Day at a Time
"I believe, in fact, that attempts to bring political protest together with 'popular music' -- that is, with entertainment music -- are for the following reason doomed from the start: The entire sphere of popular music, there even where it dresses itself up in a modernist guise, is to such a degree inseparable from the commodity character [Warencharakter], from consumption, from the cross-eyed transfixion with amusement, that attempts to outfit it with a new function remain entirely superficial. And I have to say that whenever somebody sets himself up, and for whatever reason accompanies maudlin music by singing something or other about Vietnam being unbearable -- I find, in fact, THIS SONG unbearable, in that by taking the horrendous and making it somehow consumable, it ends up wringing something like consumption-qualities out of it." - Adorno.

I legitimately despise this genre. People are right to claim that Owl City is worse than the Postal Service, but not simply for ripping them off. Owl City is worse for even WANTING to rip the Postal Service off in the first place.

A lot of people really despise this record for ripping off the Postal Service. And rightly so. However, my reason for giving them such a low rating on this account is slightly different. You see, I thought that the Postal Service already sucked from the start. Owl City deserves to get a 1 not because it's just nauseatingly cutesy, contrived, and a carbon copy of the Postal Service; rather, they deserve a 1 for even wanting to rip off the Postal Service to begin with. Ugh. Fucking pansies.

Saetia A Retrospective
Even within the screamo/emo genre, a style of music that most people know I do not like, this is one of the worst things I've ever heard. The screaming just sounds hilariously bad. The lyrics and subject matter are completely inane, and the production quality is just horrendous. "Venus and Bacchus" is one of the greatest insults to Greco-Roman mythology that I've had to listen to. There is a connection here with Alex Madara, Saetia's bassist who died in 1998. I plan to offer an alternative explanation for his death in a forthcoming full-length review.
