another stupid hack New Age
"composer" who wants to be a pianist
whiz who writes bloated, pompous artsy-fartsy puke
that is nothing more than elevator muzak
for the modern age we live in. This wretched garbage
called "New Age" is just corporate modern-day elevator music consisting of overblown "classical" pretension with just enough of a post-Pink Floyd
touch to make it more updated. Utterly disposable. There is much better instrumental
music around. Hell, Pink Floyd has done far better instrumentals. Check them out, they kick Yawn-ee's ass
1. in college
, many women
I knew there swore up and down about the merits of the music of Yanni. I listened to the suggestions of my friend
s and opened my musical horizons, listening beyond the box. Roxy Music
is awesome, Nick Lowe
is a witty rockin' dude, and I just couldn't get into Harry Connick, Jr.
at all. Well, I saw a PBS
special that featured Yanni live at home in Greece
and man did it ever ess you cee kay
. Totally poofy trash.
2. I was visiting a friend's house shortly after he got married. He slipped in a Yanni disc and read off some yucky
love "lyrics" that he wrote to the music. I was laying on a bed hearing it all, and it was all Barf City
. The lyrics were cliched and sickening to the max, and the "music" - well, it just plain suck
ed big time. The only word that could accurately describe it all was "godawful
". It was one of those things that never should've been done. Yeeeccchhh.
