Sweet Jesus wept: what the fuck is this? I’ve listened to a hell of a lot of meritless gash in the name of reviewing, but this just takes the piss.
So yes: Joseph Arthur is from Manhattan and he plays acoustic guitar. Which should be harmless enough. However, Mr Arthur also thinks that "There is only one energy/Just different sets of clothes" and that" "In time the fire will rain down…And life will be bliss. It’s an ill-conceived hybrid of new age crystal-healing ramblings and wild eyed fundamentalist Christian howlings about Judgement Day and the baptism of fire, and is quite clearly a load of intellectually offensive bullshit. Add to this the fact that this poorly-thought-out deluded crap is set to drippy and morbid Kumbaya guitar, and you have something which all right-thinking folk should avoid like the plague. There’s just no excuse for this sort of thing.
Fucking hell, I can’t believe I had to listen to that.
