Divisi's Undivided

Discuss our reviews or just talk about any old album.

I think all 3 reviewers did exactly what they were asked to do: review the album honestly. They don't have to like Divisi. It's art. It's subjective. They're not wrong any more than other people are right.

Same thing happened last year at the ICCA finals - one judge put them in last place, the rest in first (if my understanding is correct). Result: they landed in second place, and some people who thought they should have won first place (I wasn't there) bitched.

It appears Divisi is the kind of group that inspires fantastic devotion among some fans (myself included) and leaves others uninspired.

That's far better than being pretty well liked by everyone in my book. Make passionate art passionately, and hope you inspire passion in some listeners.

If you don't like Divisi, it doesn't make you an idiot by default.

You also have to not like the Bubs and Off the Beat. THEN you're a complete idiot ;)

Kimmie, you may need to bring this album to Vegas next time.

Actually, all this talk is making me want to buy this album more and more...perhaps I'LL bring it to Vegas.

God I love controversy.
