i wish music reviews could be like this now...

Over at wtf_inc widdertwin posts about twelve-tone composition...

lenkenhad this to say about it:
I've always thought Schönberg's experiments with atonality were interesting. Weird, but interesting.

But, needless to say, his experimentalism wasn't exactly greeted with open arms in the early twentieth century. Some of the reviews from the early 1900s were rather telling:

"What the fuck is this shit?"
—The Washington Post

"Um . . . uh . . . I . . . uh . . . um. . . ."
—Germany's Der Fotzenscheisse

"SCHÖNBERG IS A BIG FAT FUCKING FAGGOT ASS NIGGER!"
—The New York Times
