I checked out a Yanni CD from the library. I thought "How bad can it be?"

I also checked out a Lou Reed CD, so maybe that canceled it out. There actually was a guy who walked up beside me and I really did get a little embarrassed.

After ten years, my high school girlfriend came to visit me in the mid-90s. She looked great and was so enthused about Yanni that she insisted that she take me to his concert for my birthday (it just so happened to coincide with her trip that week).

Since I try to be an affable chap, I went. I can't say it was bad. But it certainly was interesting. Strange, but interesting.

Probably set off some alarm, like when Mel Gibson buys The Catcher in the Rye in Conspiracy Theory.

How unfortunate. That also means that there's a piece of data out there in the world that shows you've checked out the album

Yes, there are specific artists that cancel each other out when played back to back. Of course you will never feel entirely clean and whole even after applying the fix.

My wife is a Barry Manilow (I even have trouble typing his name) fan and there are days where she will put a BM CD on REPEAT and do her cleaning while listening (thankfully fully clothed, I don't need Barry in any sexual nightmares). Now I like a clean house as much as the next guy but there is a limit to how much of the Barry Factor I can endure! Prevention is the best solution but as that isn't always possible I typically use Pink Floyd or Grand Funk as an all purpose "cleaner" after she's done. I find it keeps me from going completely insane. YMMV.

Barry Manilow is great music!

Normally I wear protection, but then I thought..."when am I going to make it back to Haiti?"

Bad idea.

Well, he's an ex freebase addict and he's trying to turn his life around and he needs a place to stay for a couple of months...

Bad idea.

It's amazing how folks jump on the band wagon of a particular thread. It's like they glory in trying to vilify the targeted individual. I guess that's the macho thing to do.

Like every performer, some of his music is not that great but "Yanni at the Acropolis" is fantastic with full orchestra. Some folks simply can't handle a man with long hair... and I will agree it's a bit weird watching him toss his hair like a woman as he plays on the DVD... BUT THE MUSIC IS GREAT. Not fond of his solo CDs though.

It has nothing to do with his hair, his music would bad even if he shaved his head.

It should be physically impossible for something to suck and blow at the same time, but Yanni's music does.

My boss had this CD on repeat at work last week.

If my office wasn't on the ground floor, I would have jumped out the window just to escape the aural pain.

Say what you will about Yanni but there is one thing about him, without a doubt:



The man can sure vogue when he's..."doin' his thing". ( the term "poser" really doesn't apply to him, he's more like a "poseur" )

Remember the Doonesbury cartoon where John Denver lived close to Uncle Duke? One panel had JD singing "Rocky Mountain Hiiiiiiiigh" and the next one was "blam blam blam!".

Speaking of people you see on PBS fundraisers, how about those Irish Women (I forget the name of their band, but it's kind of like Enya lite)? A couple of them are pretty easy on the eyes. That tiny fiddler chick is a little scary, though...she jumps around a lot. Reminds me of Gollum.

Yeah, that Irish show is a tad overproduced. It is better than those Irish dancers that line up and clomp on the floor for an hour.

Some of you are really harsh critics. I like Yanni's music. Guess that tags me, but then you like what you like.

Yes, I really like Yanni's music too. You are right when you say some here are "harsh critics" they just aren't MUSIC critics. They'd probably be just as hard on mozart too.
