This album not only makes me want to [jump], it makes me sincerely frightened. This is what pop music has become? It took only thirty-one years for pop music to devolve from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, a brilliant, painstakingly executed musical journey, which took 129 days just to record the manufactured, monotonous, computer-altered N'SYNC? (forgive me for not adding that brilliant, painstakingly executed asterisk.) As I am writing this in 2003, things have definitely not gotten better. We actually have shows about this kind of musical ..., so we can watch more of this kind of [tune] as its being made. Where will we be in five more years?
This is a message to all aspiring musicians who hope to get lucky, and make music with your hands and soul, instead of with a computer and striking good looks. Sure, liking real bands who made real music, such as the Beatles, Led Lepplin, Queen or the Doots may get you some pretty funny looks. But please don't despair. You are our only hope.
