Dean Evenson – Ocean Dreams

Dean Evenson - Ocean Dreams

Fuck this hippie New Age bullshit.1

This is nothing more than your stereotypical yuppie meditation crap with waves crashing, seagulls chirping, and some mindless flute aping a Native American style so upper-middle class white people can feel “connected” with their spirit chakras2 or whatever-the-fuck from some belief system they read about on a blog with a title in Papyrus font and sepia-toned background photos and therefore have decided it’s way more connected to reality because they’ve fetishized non-European cultures as mystical shaman people.

Oh, and screw your harps, too.

1I didn’t even mean to buy this. I bought the CD at a thrift shop for $1.00 (spoiler alert: not worth the buck) because it was in a case for a recording of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons by the London Philharmonic. Stupid me forgot the number one rule of buying media at thrift shops: check the goddamn case before purchasing.
2Spellcheck wants me to correct this to “charades.” How quaint.
3Dean forgot the “g” so he can show he’s down with the urban classes.
