    I was wondering why this season premiere’s score sounded awkward to say the least… Alf’s music has kept me interested all these years but I guess I’m Simpsons tapped out now.

    In this new season there is little music than ever and it sounds very artificial, like everything remote control manufactures. Zimmer sausage factory have finish with the sou/heartl of The Simpsons, definitely…
