Great return single with a b-side treasure as surprise,
This review is from: Check The Meaning (Audio CD)
Check The Meaning, Ashcroft's first single of his seccond solo album "Human Conditions", might need a certain time to get listened into, but after that certain time you realise the beauty of this track.
Great guitar riff. Chilly bass lines and double-recorded vocals,
high and low. You'll especially prefer the perfect cut edit compared to the slight overlength of the album track.
Aside that, there is one of the best b-sides Ashcroft's ever written: The Miracle (It's gonna be a long,long road, gonna be a million paths to sow, gonna be trouble on the way, gonna get your fair share of the pain, but there's gonna be laughter and joy..." even catchier than the single itself. Sounds very souly,
a rthythmn that'll get your butts shaking.
This track is lacking on the album!!
"The Chris Potter Remix" is a very well-done alternative and
gets even more into the "lounge"-direction. Very nice. Very good. Keep up Work Rich.
