Anyone who might be 'frightened' by the 'contemporary' 'classical' you reviewed should never be allowed to listen to music again. Really. It tends to be necessary to look outside New Zealand for recordings of the cutting edge (despite an incredible level of 'contemporary' 'classical' talent in NZ). Kairos is a good place to start.
First you say "it has no redeeming features."
But then, there's "The beautiful women of course look like perfect Fifties housewives, except in leopard skins and skimpy outfits."
Surely you've contradicted yourself? :)
I must concur that Zardoz is a rare delight, and despite its over-hyped reputation, Plan 9 From Outer Space is also genuinely special...
