I’m probably not the right person to be doing this Legendary Pink Dots review because I hardly know them. Sure, they have been around since 1980 but it’s a little intimidating to try and tackle a catalog of about 1000 albums. But really, I’ve been told by a fan or two that Whispering Wall is as good a place to start as any. The Whispering Wall is the Dots third album for reputable indie ROIR. They aren’t as intimidating as I had originally thought. Sure, they are a little crazy as heard on strange tracks like “Peek-a-Boo” but really, they fit into a rack right alongside Olivia Tremor Control and would look normal. Their music is a little whimsical at times and a little over the top at others but for the most part, I found The Legendary Pink Dots to be totally listenable and enjoyable and this album to be one of the better ones that I have heard this year.
