The Tear Garden : Sheila Liked the Rodeo

ARTIST:     The Tear Garden
TITLE:      Sheila Liked the Rodeo
LABEL:      Nettwerk (Nettwerk W2-6315)
Seldom do I feel like I've gotten screwed when buying a disc. This happens to be one of these times. This disc was cheap, otherwise I'd really be irritated (and to think, it came recommended). I wanted to enjoy this disc, but I just can't bring myself to do so. If you like Devo, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Skinny Puppy and random noise you may like this disc, but I doubt it.

An example of infinity and randomness holds that if you have seven monkeys, seven typewriters, unlimited paper, and eternity, the monkeys will eventually type all of Shakespeare's works. I don't know about this, but give those same monkeys musical instruments and a recording studio and you will get something like Sheila Liked the Rodeo , but probably with better music.

Sheila Liked the Rodeo does have its high points, but they are separated by too much irritating noise to be worth it. The speak/vocals are usually pretty neat, but in the end, I think this is what really bothered me. There is a lot of potential here, but little of it is realized.

Skip this one.
