Bizarre But Strangely Beautiful
Such are the reader reviews at Amazon, especially when they're written by people who don't speak English as a first language and thus don't suffer the awful colloquialisations that have driven a sense of poetry out of some of the everyday usage of the language. I just found this gem in a review of Black Secret Technology by A Guy Called Gerald written by someone from Valencia;
I do not remember much about this album,I heard it only twice or so, in a record store in Hamburg, but I recollect I liked it a lot...The question is if I was prepared for it,if it wasn't a little "far ahead from me" these year (1996)...At the time I was not so introduced in electronic and techno music,which I began to "investigate" later, but I've always regreted not having bought this album when I could...
Nowadays it is a really really hard work,finding it...
And just now I have a doubt: the boy at the record store,did really play for me this album,or was it anything else what sounded in my headphones that day?
This is another of my favourites, from a review of End Hits by Fugazi. The author is from Istanbul;
i think this is little differ from the other fugazi albums. its not only hardcore. you wait the song finish but it still going on you wait the refrain but it never come again i think its something different i called it avant hardcore i think you realy like it.
