My attempt to blog all of the entries from the book 1001 Albums to Hear Before You Die
Brief Background: D.o.A… is second album from the experimental group Throbbing Gristle. It was recorded from September 1977 to May 1978 and was released that December.
What I think: The premise of this album: Let’s get stoned, set our portable tape players to record and catch the noise around us. Some people will think we are brilliant.
I can’t believe this took eight months to record the whole of it sounds like it could have been done it an afternoon. It is without a doubt the worst album I’ve had to listen to. I had to stop it and one point while driving, because I was falling asleep. The only “song” that has any redeeming qualities is “AB/7A” for its Kraftwerk like elements.
Do I agree or disagree with the writers as to this being an album you must listen to? No, no, no! This is not music, it is background noises.
