We've even received some acclaim from the tough critics of Ireland.

Track 2(Love) This has more a kind of jazzy, Waitsy feel with also the idea of being dumped right into the middle of a Twilight Zone episode. Good piano, horns are a little distracting but not too much so, good guitar. Kinda sounds like someone keeps opening a creaky gate?

... and then there's the rest of it.
Quote:
Track 3 Seems a bit more mechanical. Gulp! Memories of that robot song surface like a thought-weighted-down corpse... Yeah I get the idea in the track, it just doesn't really interest me. And it's way too long, like about eighteen minutes.
Track 4(Hate) I wasn't aware Frownie was a muslim, but here he is at morning prayers!
Track 5(Hate) Now he's mowing his lawn. Yeah, this is more like the Frownland music I know and hate.
Track 6 Dear Lord, receive the soul of this poor sinner.... a half ****ing hour of one track? This will be fun! Well it's halfway through and I'm not pulling out what hair remains, so that's something, but don't expect this track to be anything other than Red or White. Oh look! It's White! Yeah; mostly bored. Trouble with a track of this unprecedented length is it's got to be interesting and this, well, isn't. Sorry.
Track 7(Hate) ****ing crickets???!!!

End result: I thought (hoped) I was finally getting something different from WISK and the first track raised my hopes, but after that it went severely downhill and never recovered. Some people have described this as “relaxing” and “ambient”. While that might apply to the first track, it certainly does not to the rest, and this is not something I would put on to relax or fall asleep to. Sorry Frown but I think that's it for you and I: you can have the kids, I just want the cat. And that cup. And your cowboy hat.

So, Love or Hate? Started off hoping, but it's a clear Hate I'm afraid.

I never said that you weren't a bitch about the rest of it. You praised two tracks. Boom. International acclaim.

That part of the review reads like you're not even listening to the album anyways, just bubbling in frustration that I'm not playing neoprog.

Meh, whatever gets you through the day, dude. You're the one who brought up the cherry-picked highlights of my review; did you really think I was going to let you misrepresent me like that?

I'm not sure why you would think that I would expect you to be playing neoprog. This wasn't the first of your albums I listened to; I knew what to expect, as you can see from the closing comments. I was just surprised by the difference in the first two tracks to the rest of it. And if being honest and not licking your arse about your music is being a bitch, then all I can say is

You're the one that loved two tracks. Boom. International acclaim bitch.

Some seriously ignorant stuff in that review though.

It's not acclaim to say "there are two tracks I like but the rest is ****". Really? You're reaching here, my friend, you're reaching.

After a half-hour track like that, who the **** can tell? Or cares?

Your love still counts in the presence of your hate, baby. You can't take that away from me.

People who judge tracks on their own accord and not based on the tracks before them in the track listing maybe. Just a guess. Or maybe people who can wrap their heads around a song being more than five minutes long.

Yeah yeah, we've had this conversation too many times before for me to waste further time on it, not to mention hijack Matrix's thread. You know how I feel about your music, that won't change. Move on. There's nothing for you here.
