    Yes! I would have! Because most people didn't like the production
on this one. The production just sucks! The songs are ok, BUT, I think
the songs could've been better had someone with some talent been
producing. If they wanted hard, why not Steve Albini? (I wonder what
that would've sounded like). Lush is talented but I think the bad
record was due to the producer.

There are some simply awesome songs that were put out though: Sweetie,
Lastnight, Ex, but....I don't know, but it seems like slagging Lush has
become kinda an American thing. Just my opinion, but all the reviews by
the Brits are good while the American ones are bad. Anyone else notice
that?

Anyone agree/disagree? Please don't make out to be that "Rap people"
guy!

uhhhhhhhhh...let's get something clear here, dearie. i didn't even write
the review, i just forwarded it because i agreed with it and thought it was
relevant. i would repost the top of the review and the subject header,
which i believe was 'lush review (consumable)' or something like that, and
prove it to you, but i deleted it. :) next time please read your mail a
little more carefully before you lash out...you know, counting to ten works
pretty well.

and i still hold to my previous opinion of lush: the new one is crap. i'm
not going to cry sellout and there are a few good songs on it, but i guess
i expected more than i got. i hold the same opinion for the new ride.
 and dammit, with the breakup of verve and their new lineup sans
mccabe, could 1996 be the year of possible stylistic change flops?
 i don't want to start some debate on how bands shouldn't
change, i think they should. i think it's healthy. 
the beatles didn't keep doing 'yeah yeah yeah' for years and years, did
they? good songs can succeed in *any* style, but they have to be there
first.

uh, i'll stop ranting now.

now, 7% solution, an austin band, and it's a great moving diversion from
the web pages i have due tomorrow. it's equal parts swirling noisy-noise,
lush (the adjective, not the band) vocals, and more straightforward melodic
stuff. nice silver-on-black packaging, and they have the nicest gimmick
i've ever seen - you actually get two (of the same) ceedees for your $10.
one is in a separate cardboard slipcase and the main packaging says 'please
give this copy to a friend.' they are playing here tonight but the show is
21+. figures. the address on the back is:

xray
8400 briarwood
austin texas 78757

if i wasn't such a cynic i'd say austin has a swirl/pop hybrid scene
brewing. (nod to hk) you can't find any good pedals in pawn shops here any
more. anyway, just a rec...if you know my tastes you'll know what you're in
for. :) i'll give y'all more feedback about it after five or so more
listens.

i don't know if it's wrong.  with some artists it's very obvious what they
were attempting to do (i can't agree or disagree with joanna since i haven't
heard lovelife. . .)

yeah, but some of us who don't have a lot of money are interested in what
other people we trust think about stuff we want to buy.  that way, when we
go to make a purchase, our money's well spent.  i don't think joanna was

Rather rash generalization given the noise on this list, as among the
handful of reviews I recall Andrews being rather negative.

However, this one seems to be the first to be generally embraced by the
U.K. music rags and is something like 8 on the pop charts there.  Since
the words are evidently more discernable, the critics have sumthin' to
cogitate over this time.  Bah.  Perhaps it's all a rear guard action by
nationalists who don't find Britpop increasingly irrelevant.

As for myself I've only sampled a bit of it...but from their recent cover
art I fear Vaughan Oliver has finally lost it.  Either that, or making an
ironic stab at the pedestrian nature of the music.

As a fan of music, I believe that it is your responsibility as well as your god-
iven
(ha-ha) right to form your own opinions based on whatever objective, subjective 
nd
kneejerk basis available to you.  For something as flimsily abstract as (pop) ar
, I think
it is entirely excusable and justifiable to like, dislike, deify, or hate anythi
g based on
any reason, be it content, production, packaging, commercial value, intent (actu
l or
speculated), haircut of the lead singer, the person he/she is currently shagging
 the
number and type of cacti represented on the LP sleeve, etc.

And at the same time, to say that it is wrong to espouse on this list any opinio

whatsoever that has to do with the work of an artist typically discussed on this
mailing
list is horribly myopic.  A fan of any form of art has every right to speculate 
n what the
artist had in mind at the outset and on whatever he or she was trying to achieve
at the
end.  The fan also has every right to share those opinions, although whoever tha
 happens
to be listening also has the right to ignore said speaker.  This two-way relatio
ship of
open and free communication should be as obvious as proverbial night and day, an
 if the
notions of niceness and propriety happen to get at least a little violated along
the way,
then so be it.

On a slight tangent, I really wonder how and/or why some people automatically as
ume that
those folks pedestalized in the ivory tower of artiste-hood are either infallibl
,
inscrutable, or both.  I mean, wasn't that the ironclad party line about the Cat
olic
Church at one point in history?  Look, as a fan and as a consumer, it is our pri
ilege and
right to moan, moan, moan about how a hard-earned $14 investment turned out to b
 a dud
piece of plastic and aluminum, barely fit to serve as a coaster.  And as far as 
e
net.heads are concerned, my god, talk doesn't get any cheaper than all the fur t
at flies
here.

And while we're at it I think it should also be pretty obvious that a published 
pinion
doth not make a fact.  If you believe that the public dissemination of a conflic
ing view
somehow undermines yours, I would be inclined to seriously question your grasp o
 reality
and the strength of the convictions that make up your views.

Anyway, on a parting note, here's a thought: if it were true, that one should sa
 nothing
if one has nothing nice to say, then either we would most likely have nothing to
say 99.5%
of the time or would be constantly lying through our collective teeth.  Personal
y, I think
I would much rather be shooting and dodging bullets in a lively net.discussion t
an to
pretend good manners by waddling around with a cork up my hiney.

Maximum love,

PS.   So, have copies of 'Lovelife' made their way to the clearance bins yet?  H

it's sam's book "the first pain to linger."  it's being released with
a black tape for a blue girl cd.  i believe the cd has couple of new
songs, as well as remixes of some stuff from "ashes in the brittle
air" and earlier stuff.  you can find out more info at the projekt web

funny, but i never pictured any of sam or black tape for a blue girl's

Rich,

While it is ok to have your personal opinions about the review Joanna
forwarded, it is completely wrong to espouse your opinions on why the
review was written and what it was attempting.
Unless that is, of course, that you are friends with the unnamed author
of the review (which I highly doubt by your review of it). Some would
argue that if you do not have anything good to say about a reviewer then
do not say anything. They are writers, and it is not our job to
criticize. It is our job to make our OWN decisions about whether we agree
with a review. Period.

[Have we reductoed this ad absurdum yet?]

Um I'm a yank and I think Lovelife is ok. I'd rate it somewhere on a
plane with "spooky" which means it doesnt compare with the brilliance of
Split or Gala, but its better than most of the crap thats out there.

I actually have usually percieved most of the lush slagging to be a Brit
thing... basically ever since Spooky they have fallen out of that
'favourite son' category that is the driving force of the british music
industry, and basically anything they do seems to be met with a degree of
antagonism from the british 'scene' (read british press, critics, etc)

As for that 'Lush are artists it is not our place to judge' business, I
have to disagree. Art is a two way street. It is a contract between the
artist and the listener/viewer/reader/receiver. It would not be possible
without either the talent of the artist nor the discernment of the
receiver. I think it is neccessary for the 'consumers' of an art form to
be aware of the elements of their artists' production. And for a band
that is considered by some to be 'avant garde' or at least opposed to the
mainstream of music, the direction they are taking their album is a big
part of their artistic venture. I think as  educated listeners (read
there that we know the bands previous work and understand the genre in
which they are working) we can make informed conclusions about what a
band is trying to do with an album or song. If we dont then the artists
aren't communicating with us and the music might as well be something we
hear in a lift.

in fact yes they have,  I got mine for exactly that...$5.  The more I listen,
the more I like. The songs tend to sound better when listened to in the
context of the album as a whole. If listened to individually, most dont hold
up.  Anyway, the Atlanta lush, scheer and mojave 3 show is on April 23
(tuesday) at the Masqerade (god i hate that place), so all of you southerners
who want to see this show will have to make the trek to atlanta.  For some
reason they (lush) never seem to want to go to florida (cant say i blame
them, i lived there for 9 years and I'd rather walk on hot coals with
gasoline socks than go to florida).

more misspellings!  the tickets i got today for the new york show say
that lush is playing with "mojave 5 and sheer."

talk about worst day to stand outside waiting for the box office to open...
it was snowing huge flakes with gusty winds, oh it was so horrid, and i
showed up at the wrong time and everything, coz the Voice said tickets
went on sale at 10am sharp, but the box office actually only opened at 12.

the things i do...only for lush.........

place.
