Yep, I've decided to bring up an old argument in the music world. Though I've listened to Bitches Brew and In A Silent Way for a while now, I've just started to get into some of Miles' work after that. Live-Evil, Black Beauty, and today I picked up On The Corner. This stuff is quite daunting. It certainly has a lot of energy, you can't deny that. On the one hand, a lot of it seems incredibly simple, something I'm not used to from Miles. Yet, it can be very hard to listen to. Overall, though, I'm enjoying it. It's very hypnotic. I find that I like it more if I listen more passively. That is, with his acoustic music, I really dig in to it and like to snap up all the little details. With the electric stuff, it sounds better if I take it as a whole, greater than the sum of its parts. And there are lots of crazy noises. NP: Frank Zappa, Civilisation Phase III , CD, which is also some really weird and confusing stuff.
