      This is an interesting ethical question. If someone currently making music
      declared themselves a racist, I'm sure a lot of us would avoid their stuff
      like the plague. But it's OK for historic figures... Does it boil down to
      current social impact? Wagners long dead so his views can't do any harm?
      This isn't something I've really thought about before so any points...

      Speaking of Albini...

      Is this a new album? Please tell me it's better than Terraform...
