Prog Reviewer
2 stars On Paris 1919 John Cale offers up a disparate range of songs in a range of styles that collectively evoke an air of mildly wistful nostalgia but otherwise don't seem to have very much in common. Those who know him as Lou Reed's guitar sparring partner and teller of tall tales from the Velvet Underground may find the album disappointingly conventional, and indeed it seems to consciously balance Cale's art rock aspirations against a rather bland production - and whenever the two are in tension, blandness wins. Perhaps this is the right place to start with Cale if your musical diet to date has been unchallenging soft rock, but for those who are used to a little more zing in their music it's likely to be a snore-fest.
Warthur | 2/5 |
