Please don't stalk me…but…Oh my goodness…

I was so looking forward to this CD, Elemental by Cesium_137. When I actually got the chance to listen to it, I was struck…with a boring hammer. Wow, how uninspiring this CD is. I'm even afraid to mention these guys' names because I don't want to embarrass them further or have them stalk me and trap me into a room to listen to it again. I mean, come on, even their website was screwed up and not very useful! Ugh…

The first two tracks, "The Storm" and "Atrophy" are marginal at BEST. I think the best way of explaining them would be to say they would be filler tracks in between GOOD songs at the club - i.e.: "hey, I'm waiting for something good to play," or "I need to get a beer," or "hey, I need to take a crap, and I need to fill in 4 minutes before I get the crowd going again." This CD was approximately an hour or so of my life that I shall never get back.

Oh goodness, I feel so bad for not liking this CD. But then again, I'm hoping Cesium_137 will go back into the studio and burn their equipment, and start over. Everything I listened to was all tried and worn out, trite, too busy or over done. I could count the beats and tell you exactly what noise or beeping sound would come next, and the same for the lyrics - Totally predictable.

I still can't get over it... Wow… I'm so under-whelmed.

Check it out if you dare, or if you really need something to make you feel better about your own musical abilities! Ha.
