No Thanks! Only Review Our Band If You Get It Right!

RECEIVED Fri., July 15, 2005

Dear Editor,
    I've just read the current review of the Ghostland Observatory album by Audra [Schroeder] [“Texas Platters,” Music, July 15]. Thanks, but no thanks. Does she even know what electroclash is? It doesn't seem highly intelligent to throw bands into this category just because they use synthesizers and drum machines.
    Moreover, the tracks she labeled as Giorgio Moroder-influenced sound nothing like the producer, which leads me to wonder if she even knows who Giorgio Moroder is. Maybe if the album sounded like At the Drive-In or Trail of Dead, the album might have received two-and-one-half stars.
    Once again, thanks, but no thanks.
