Well that is bad taste as well. The weakest elements of the album is the tracks with any vocals or words. But the instrumental music is fine.
I know that the composer has presented this to be about 9-11 and has a title on each track to represent
I genuinely believe it is impossible for instrumental music to have literal meaning (emotional meaning yes but not literal meaning). This is equally applicable to Berlioz, Liszt, Tchaikovsky, Mahler as much as it is to Tony Kaye. Even if the composer claim it represents x, y, z and have detailed written program notes claiming what the music is about I don’t believe that is anything more than subjective interpretation from imagery from the composer and no more valid than any story an audience creates that follow a similar emotional journey of the music. I probably need more words and time to go through why I believe this. Let just say in the “War of romantics” I side with the conservatives.
Tony Kaye I guess confuses the issues with the words and samples from quotes give it literal meaning, however since that is the minority of tracks it doesn’t have a huge negative bearing on my thoughts of the album even if I would probably disagree with the political message
