I don't like the idea of the rework. The National? Christ on a carbon bike. What are we supposed to do with that?

As we all know, each Neu track plays forever in some other corner of the Multiverse. If that one chord does the job, why shift it? When I first heard this album, I found myself staring at the wall, some odd peace doing the rounds of Ye Olde Cardiovascular System. It’s unashamedly itself: crisp, repetitive, full of quiet magic. No shit prog false grandeur. There are soft melodic rills running over here and there but there’s no showing off. I don’t like the idea of the rework. The National? Christ on a carbon bike. What are we supposed to do with that? They made a finished work first time around; there’s bugger all anyone could do with it worth talking about.

HELP OUTSIDELEFT

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]

WRITE FOR OUTSIDELEFT

If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
