|Miss Violetta Beauregarde
Odi Profanum Vulgus Et Arceo
(Temporary Residence Ltd.)
by Jericho Brown
The title of this album translates to "I hate the common crowd and I spurn them." If this CD is the status of the current European musical vanguard, there is no hope for the future.
This album has 16 tracks, none longer than 1:48, totaling just over nineteen minutes of, um ... sounds. There is music in there, in spots. For the most part in sounds like someone broke half a dozen CDs, glued them back together, shoved them into a player, had some pissed off
junkie chick scream for a few minutes and recorded the whole affair.
Let's be honest here. Miss Violetta Beauregarde screams incoherently because she has no other talents. Frankly, she's barely believable as an incoherent screamer. The, um, sounds, are just annoying.
If you hate your housemates, if you are stone deaf or if you want your friends to think you are completely cracked and probably homicidal, this is the album for you.
