Gordon Beeferman: Four Parts Five
Disco assolutamente futile, persino fastidioso, nel suo incessante, inesorabile, impietoso rimuginare attorno a pochi patterns che vengono ripetuti per qualche decina di secondi (o più) ciascuno, per passare poi al successivo, e così via. Questo, lungo i quattro brani che compongono l'album (appena mezzoretta di musica, ma che fatica arrivare ciò nonostante alla fine!), senza soluzioni altre da un'autoreferenzialità totale e -come dicevamo -veramente fastidiosa, creativamente impalpabile da qualunque proiezione la si guardi.

Nulla o quasi di jazzistico, ovviamente (il che non è evidentemente un metro di giudizio, quanto una pura e semplice constatazione di appartenenza), per una musica ossessiva, tutta ritorta su se stessa, annichilita e annichilente, alienata e alienante. Di quella che fa venire terribili pruriti alle mani, e come tale da grattar via il più in fretta possibile.
