i really do like music that makes me have to think about whether i like it or not - really, most of my favorite music does. but with progressively more acclaimed things in the last couple years that leave me with a stalemate at best, i really appreciate sharing something so boneheaded - the sort of thing i play for pleasure and ease between trying to decide if i like other records - with a big mass of other critics and people for once. and it's also kind of neat to watch other people struggle with this and pour their visceral do-i-don't-i reactions the way i do with say, joanna newsom. i would've liked to to see people's reactions firsthand to the tea-kettle whistle in "terminator x to the edge of panic" too.
