Music at Tutankhamun exhibition 'inclined me to violence'
Brian Appleyard, arts critic in the Sunday Times on London's new Tutankhamun exhibition:
"In fact, it was a West End musical. Yes, this show has music.And yes, it is dreadful. Think of the stuff they play in spas while giving you a massage. It is intended to be relaxing, but its meandering, unresolved tinkling tenses every muscle in your body. It inclined me to violence and certainly shredded my capacity for contemplation."
