5.0 out of 5 stars Songs of time and distance, 13 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: What Sound (Audio CD)
A very good album, almost like a mix of portishead, massive attack and morcheeba, but with a very melancholic feel and a smooth but solid bass. There are two tracks that really hit the spot for me. "I cry" is an incredible, truly incredible, song of what I guess you coud call the "human condition" - Love, Longing, Pain and the Optimism of Redemption all thrown into a songs lyrics :
"
Some people turn to pills and things
to help them through the day
to take them up or down or just
to ease the blues away
By me I really want to feel
The ups and downs of life so real ..."
The other track that kicks, in the extreme sense is "Gabriel". I've not heard anything of this calibre in years. It reminds me of a quote from the Will Gibson book "Count Zero":
"Are you sad ?"
"No"
"But your ... Your songs are sad ..."
"My songs are of time and distance. The sadness is in you. Watch my arms. There is only the dance ..."
Gabriel just has that feel. It's not sad, but listening to it imbues a sense of longing that's almost sadness. I'm not sure I can explain it. Go listen to it.
