23846RE: [Hybrid] OT: BT - This Binary Universe
- Aug 30, 2006Well, that's certainly a rather jaded way of looking at it.
What is cheesy about a father loving his firstborn? Just because he shares it with his fans via the album/DVD? Doesn't strike me as that different from my friends who've shared their home movies with me.
The entire album, according to BT, was inspired by his daughter and most of the songs were written as lullabies for her. It's a rather personal album and I think it's rather fantastic that he decided to share it with his fans.
The song itself is not cheesy at all. It's a beautiful piece of music. Perhaps you are under the impression that this album is in ANY way similar to ET - it's not.

BT has no doubt produced some awsome work down the years but the thought of
watching a montage of him and his daughter makes me feel sick. I had hoped
he would stay away from the cheese fest that was Emotional Technology in
future. Either way I am sure it is worth a listen!
