perhaps this was overstated originally or i simplified the quote from 
the movie.  what i think was meant by this was, this album had no 
outside critical reaction that could have influenced it.  once 
someone knows people are listening, or even reads reviews (and jandek 
obviously read the option review, as stated in the film), it's going 
to affect the output after that somewhat.  it's almost unavoidable.
