writing about Polly's debut that I was one of the "why" people that I mentioned, but I was actually covertly expressing my own opinion there: I own not a single album by Bowie, Mott, Slade, T. Rex, or almost any other glam bands, with the noted exception of Eno-period Roxy Music (and Eno solo albums) and a couple of Alice Coopers. Glam - even supposedly good glam - generally strikes me as shallow, image-conscious music, for the most part, and kind of boring; I simply do not care whose main man Telegram Sam might be, and never have.
Still, I couldn't let my own antipathy towards glam - I even thought Velvet Goldmine was a bit of a yawn - taint my review. The Polly CD is a pretty damn good CD, if you like that sort of thing; I simply don't.
On the other hand, I'm on a big Funerary Call kick this month, and not only respected, but totally enjoyed Fragments From The Aethyr, which I have continued to listen to since writing the review.
Funerary Call is at the bottom, with zero likes. Only one other band has attracted so little attention.
Ah, well! I guess people will like what they like. (Fans of Funerary Call and Sistrenatus would actually be doing the band a favour by sharing the review, however; such things directly increase the likelihood of bigger & better articles bein' written...).
