An album thatListening to this album is one of those moments when I feel like I am a victim of some elaborate, grand-scale trolling scheme. An album that received universal acclaim, an album surrounded with hype of thousand suns. I really tried to like it, trust me I really did. I just cannot comprehend what do people actually love M B V for.
The easiest to digest, and closest to what I'd call an actual music is the song "New You" fairly uninspiring pop-rock song. The rest, oh boy where to start. The last three were simply a torture to listen to. It goes like this, pretty much:
1. grab a guitar, a dozen of distortion pedals at the same time and play four completely random chords in succession;
2. find a chick who will moan something to your song; Make sure nobody can understand what she actually sings.
3. get the drummer who will play entirely the same thing for 5 minutes.
There, that's what M B V sounds like. And it took them 20+ years to make.
As I said, I think this is some very elaborate prank or maybe I listened to the wrong record. I certainly hope so.… Expand
