This ebook contends that regardless of a name for being beat-less, the album exudes percussive interest, supplying a sonic metaphor for our technologically mediated period of numerous synchronized nanosecond metronomes.

Sample text

It would seem that social stigma is a situation faced and perpetrated by individuals, or small groups, as part of identifying something or someone that is different. 5,6 The tension between focusing on individuals and/or socio-structural factors in the stigma debate can be seen in the areas of health and illness. This is not surprising, as social stigma theory has informed health/illness related literature by focusing on the individual feelings of the sick, social interaction with other ‘healthy’ subjects, and the consequences of social stigmatisation for areas of importance such as health delivery systems.

Symptoms include delusional thoughts, that is fixed false beliefs out of synch with a person’s normal cultural or social situation; hallucinations (false sensory perceptions which can be in any of the five senses but are usually found in aural or visual fields); disorganised speech; disorganised behaviour; restrictions in the range of emotional expressions; and a decrease in goal-directed behaviour. 10 Osbourne’s lyrics in particular appear to focus on a drug-induced psychosis with the mention of the erroneous, but widely held, social myth that people with schizophrenia have split personalities.
