Announcement: “Frozen” on Vinyl? Has It Really Come to This?
Was the music of Frozen really that good enough to warrant a vinyl pressing?
How much more money does Disney need?
On one hand, if this exposes kids to the mysterious wonders of vinyl records, then I don’t see the harm. Any excuse for mom and pop to dust off the old turntable and play some records is a good excuse to me.
On the other hand, it’s the fucking soundtrack for Frozen. Just how does this overproduced, squeaky-clean music benefit from being heard on vinyl? Unless someone plans on playing “Let It Go” at half-speed backwards and uncovering some hidden Satanic message, I consider this precious waste of vinyl a sin. (Those bizarre “sexy Olaf Halloween costumes” were more tolerable than this.)
Consider this an update of sorts: the Frozen video review is still underway (and overdue), but if people are really dishing out the money to buy this crap, is a critical assessment even worth it anymore?
(Speaking of pointless criticisms, here’s a bit of Fry and Laurie that I think everyone here will appreciate.)
