When I like a John Cale album, I like it a lot, or at least I love a handful of songs on it. When I don’t like a John Cale album, I like nothing from it. When he’s ON, to my standards, he’s pretty great. When he’s OFF, as I hear it, he’s a total bore – at best. I can’t think of another artist whose albums have this extreme effect on me.
You may debate me on my tastes, but better yet, is there an artist who brings out such extreme reactions in you? Any reason why this might be?
I look forward to your comments.
