I'm in no position to comment, thank god

one of the benefits of growing up is not having to like The Complete Works of anybody

one of the drawbacks of growing up is having to decide whether The Emperor has any clothes

What on earth does this mean? Enigmatic or what?

Steve Reich's latest work uses Radiohead themes

I do like some of SR's work

But some of his stuff leaves me distinctly underwhelmed

Heard an extract of his latest piece and.....

"So why comment then? "

I didn't

want to

because it's horribly reminiscent of Burt Bacharach a few years back

trying to latch onto Oasis to rejuvenate his career

If you don't like something, don't bother with it. As Stan Laurel said, "Life's not short enough."

Sorry for that. I had forgotten the Radiohead piece was to debut this week, so thanks for reminding me. Wish I'd been able to hear the complete work performed. The bits in background on the
Steve Reich Interview on BBC sounded pretty interesting.

As to the silliness in the OP--well, it's just that...

Considering that Reich won the Pulitzer Price for Music in 2009, I wouldn't say his career - a 50-year career - needs rejuvenating. I would guess that he's individual enough to decide exactly which way his musical direction should go without being driven by that motive.

I've commented at greater length on Reich in the Howard Goodall's Story of Music thread, so I won't repeat it here. But I will say this:

I always find it odd that people can't imagine there to be any value in music that they don't personally like. Surely it's self evident that, if people take the time and effort to create a certain type of music - and other people in their turn take the time and effort to listen to it - then there has to be some value in that music. We may not all see the value in that music - so be it - but you can't say it has no value at all.

One of the things I set myself to do, many years ago, was to keep an open ear and to give new and unknown (to me) music a chance. Some of what I've heard didn't, in the end, interest me; some of it stuck with me. All of it educated me and improved my musical knowledge in some way. Music, of all the arts, has meant more to me than most other things throughout my whole life, and it's always worth searching for a nugget of meaning and delight in it, wherever it might be.
