*sigh* Sometimes I think I'm never going to get back to playing my old vinyl...

new stuff:

Haptic - Correction (Entr'acte)
hamaYoko - 4/29 (Entr'acte)
Marc Behrens - Architectural Commentaries (Entr'acte)
Christopher McFall - Four Feels for Fire (Entr'acte)
Moljebka Pvlse - Seventeen Migs of Spring (Topheth Prophet)
Tatsuya Nakatani - Primal Communication (H&H)


I rave a bit about the good things I see in places like DIA:Beacon, but here are some I can't quite get my eyes around there:

Blinky Palermo - Just don't see it. Flat, semiphore-like panels of no depth or spatial interest. Like this:

Walter De Maria - Two enormous rooms (maybe 50 x 250') each with six pairs of silver shapes (square and circle, oriented one way in room A, one in room B). I'd rather view them outside in a field or lawn.

The Warhol room. 72, I think, reproductions in varied tones. Just not interesting in any manner I could conceive.

The Nauman neons, eh. Never a Louise Bourgeois fan, still not. The Smithsons and Judd boxes would also be better served in an other-than-museum environment. That Chamberlain "curtain"....nope (though several others of his are great).

Minor carps because there's so much fantastic work there, but don't always want to be so rosy....
