This move is nothing more than a publicity stunt lining the pockets of a highly corrupt organisation.

I have a form of autism. What I and others like me need is to have our talents recognised and to make a positive contribution to society - not to be patronised, seen as a lost cause and LEAST OF ALL CURED!

If you genuinely care about helping disadvantaged people then do not BLINDLY throw your money at organisations which specialise in MARKETING themselves through your sympathy.

I will certainly not be buying any of this music and neither should you.

with all due respect for your feelings and your personal situation, I would like to think that these artists had their hearts in the right place when they were recording Bruce Haack's songs, and that this collection is celebrating the beauty of music and community. perhaps we can all be a little more compassionate towards each other's efforts. best of luck in pursuit of your hopes and dreams.
