"All head, dead from the neck down"

From Brian Eno: A Sandbox In Alphaville by Lester Bangs.

No. I think the trouble with almost all experimental composers is that they’re all head, dead from the neck down. They don’t trust their hearts, I think, and tend to take themselves with a solemnity so extreme as to be downright preposterous. I don’t see the point, really. I’ve always abandoned pieces which succeeded theoretically but not sensually.”

In theory, theory is a waste of time. At least that's how I feel. Well, I think I feel that way. But now we're back to theory. Hmm.
