Nina Sub Nive
"The Good Shepherd" CDR
sometimes it's the unassuming little cdr eps in
xeroxed cover art that end up really charming the pants off of me.
well, that's certainly not the case here. the problem starts on track
one, "u've (gotta find the Lord)" - it's a disgusting heap of stupid
vocals and directionless electronics that could go down as one of the
most ill-conceived songs ever recorded. hip-hop, electronics, rock...
it takes a whole set of genres, folds them together, and comes up with
one stinking mess. "skin patrol (the power of equality)" continues the
disaster, and if it weren't for the deep, johnny cash style
vocals and minimal production of "revelation (the sweetest, ever)"
this would have been a complete waste. this may be the last heavily
religious italian cdr demo i ever get, but i'll take the risk if it
means warning the public against the mental strain derived from
suffering through the good shepherd. "revelation," however, is
an interesting piece of music worthy of note - yet sadly, it doesn't
save the ship that sunk ten seconds into track one.
