Before Buildings Fell
About the Artist
This release is from Sam Rosenthal, who is the leader of Projekt act black tape for a blue girl.
electronic music from 1986
Black tape for a blue girl's founder Sam Rosenthal had his musical beginnings in electronic music before there weregenre names like "ambient," "new age," "darkwave" or "electronica." Back in 1986 - - before there were sequencers, before there were samplers, before MIDI became the norm for stringing together computers and keyboards - - Rosenthal was experimenting with the creation of instrumental music both synchronously warm and ominous. Playing with the shape of sounds in a totally "hands-on" manner, Rosenthal pioneered a style on "Before The Buildings Fell" that was close to the post-prog work of Tangerine Dream and Brian Eno.

I mean, Music that's made to annoy can be very effective, a la Throbbing Gristle, but this is certainly garbage in anyone's ears.
I wholly recommend you bypass this record in lieu of something else on the label. I think Projekt has issued some very good cds, namely Lycia and the New Christy Minstrels, other than that, there's not much caring about.
I don't know what it is, but it made me think about J.P. Morgan.
And how her big glasses really accentuated her shag haircut. I also really like how when you're in a room full of people and how somebody farts and everybody pretends not to notice it and you have to wonder if there are people out there who actually like the smell of farts. And are not really pretending. And you wonder, "am I one of them?" And then you tell yourself, "of course not, I would never enjoy something like that." And you feel a twinge of guilt, because, you know that you actually did just make an effort to smell the fart, no, not because you enjoy it, but because you just had to find out what that fart smelled like. Even though you don't enjoy that sort of thing.
After you discovered what the fart smelled like, you tell yourself, "see? I did not enjoy the smell of that fart." And you feel much better because you're not a pervert who likes to smell farts. And everything's beautiful. That's how this record makes you feel.

Kindly note that all those making poor reviews clearly have no idea what this album is, or is intended to be...they can stick to commercial music. This cd is fantastic.
