If you have any sense of taste whatsoever and even the most minimal of intellectual faculties, here is a blog entry for you â some bright spark has logged onto Amazon, looked up some of the contemporary works of cinematic, literary and musical art widely considered to be âclassicsâ and logged the least favourable reviews that have been posted.
Here is an example of a review of the Beach Boysâ Pet Sounds:
âThis is not the Beach Boys. It can't be. Why? No beach songs! I thought it was some kind of joke. All 'Pet Sounds' offers is the opportunity to hear Brian Wilson whine for forty minutes, backed by elevator music.â

âIâm pretty sure I will enjoy it a lot more when Warner Bros finally gets around to releasing the colorized version, the way this movie needs to be seen â the world is not black and white, why should our movies be?â
And finally, Norah Jonesâs Come Away With ME:
âPuke, puke, puke. Can you hear me puke. This is 100% rectum. Her dull voice bodes poorly with the cheesy backing music. Sounds like a bad night club singer.â
