Blender's Snark Lists.

Finding nothing else better to do, I decided to surf over to Blender's website to read their various lists of "bests", "worsts", "Bratwursts", etc.
What greeted me first was a vast, all-encompassing damnation of one of my favourite bands.
Yes, you can go ahead and laugh your asses off, if the mood strikes, but I LIKE Iron Butterfly, man!
"In A Gadda Da Vida", all fifteen minutes (give or take a few seconds) of it, remains a classic, right down to the occaisionally clunky drum solo and the trumpeting Elephant guitar bit.
I bought the "collector's edition" with the explanatory booklet and trippy tilt motion cover, some time back. Not a shred of buyers remorse.
