One dimensional music about a 4 dimensional planet.
01/10/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"How to describe East River Pipe? Well, for starters, East River Pipe is the work of one sole man, F.M.Cornog, who (as is often boasted on his releases) records everything himself in a small Queens, N.Y. apartment. His songs are for the losers, the dejected, the ones who walk around wondering where their life went. As the album takes you through droll commentaries on 21st century life, it's diversions and people, it seems almost a depressent, until the last song which re-affirms our essence in almost an existentialist vein("Life Is Born Today"). If you don't own this, you should and if you don't like it, you're probably a gimp."
Good-fi

"There is no lo-fi or hi-fi, there is only good-fi and bad-fi. And "Mel" is very good-fi. Not only is it more vibrant and eclectic than "Gasoline Age," there's more pop on here. I was fortunate to receive the Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds" and this album in the mail the same day. Each the brainchild of one person. Each chock full of richly layered textures, introspective lyrics, haunting melodies and pop gems. One considered hi-fi because it was recorded in a studio; one considered lo-fi because it was recorded in an apartment. Go figure."
One of the top 5 or so discs I bought all last year

"Very haunting and addicting work. Can listen to this disc over and over again. Can't understand why this artist has not received more critical and commerical acclaim.Outstanding in every way."
