Review by admireArt
4 stars Who else but Tim Hecker would have been able to play around with such characters and story and deliver such good results.

As you may have intuited from its (horrendous) cover art and song (?) titles this work is structured around some kind of Van Halen related voice samplers & soundbits of course transmuted by Tim Heckerīs electronically filtered/cut up/distorted/noise enhanced & reduced/re-arranged & reloaded experimental hand.

I read somewhere that this could hardly be called music, if so, Mr. Hecker should feel more than proud because this his 2nd output My Love Is Rotten To The Core (2002) EP was certainly pointing out at his personal quest in finding his own electronic music language and in doing so he also updates, without plagiarising, the not so famous nor money hungry and still obscure side of the Berlin School of electronic music of which Conrad Schnitzler, Master Noise/Glitch Maker, was also one of its original founders and the not Berlin School at all but early in his career (and also later) electronic/acoustic music composer & musician Steve Reich with his astounding , way ahead experimental recorded vocal works like Come Out (1966) or My Name Is (1967).

So, not all that glitters is gold and gold not always glitters.

Therefore I will not try to encourage or discourage you about this EP. Tim Heckerīs music language is not for everyone that I know but this work is certainly for me, who by the way could not care less about David or Eddie, but that is exactly what art is all about.

In my collection 4 PA stars, in yours?, I really donīt know, unless you already know.
