2.0 poorSirRicheyMethodius | December 6th 18

It feels like most of the production was made with the idea that harsh automatically makes it good. This is a lie. I have nothing against harsh music, and some of my favourite albums are noise albums. However, in order for noise to interest me, it has to do something other than just be harsh; maybe a fun rhythm like in the first disc of Pan Sonic - Kesto, maybe a chilling and immersive atmosphere like in Tyrannus - Black Sun, or maybe interesting dynamics and textures like in Ramleh - Hole in the Heart. Mummy and Daddy has none of these.

It's not any better lyrically either, with the lyrics clearly only existing to offend, and lacking in artistic integrity. A 13 year old could write something more advanced than "A Cunt Like You."

In conclusion, Whitehouse seem to completely miss the point of making noise music; it is not to shock, it is not to offend, it is not to intentionally make an album difficult to listen to. It is to create a series of sounds that, despite often lacking melody, rhythm, and conventional structure, are enjoyable to listen to and engage the listener, making them want to listen to more of their work. Difficult =/= good.
