when/where you listen to I Choose Noise.
It's on at work at the moment and it's really uplifting - I am
I've not really given my comments so far...I like to see what
response you guys give before jumping in with mine. I don't want to
opinions (actually, that would be pretty hard to do with you lot!).
So, here are a few of my comments about some indivdual tracks. I'll
keep it brief ;-)
I wasn't sure how I'd react to this track...but I really like it.
Messes with my head a little...is it me, or does it go in and out of
major and minor keys?...or is that just the way Perry has sung it?
It's a very catchy track...although I can only ever remember two
lines....this is a written impression of me singing this tune to
"Mmmmm...laaa..laaa....on a Sunday
afternoon!....mmmm....laaa.laaaa.laaa...wish upon a Dogstar!"
I Choose Noise
I can see why this is Chris' favourite track. I love the
orchestration. I really like the chord progression at 4mins 5
secs...I don't even know how to describe why I love it...it just
works really well. Lovely.
At first, I thought this was quite commercial - Judy sings the
vocals in a certain way...reminds me a little of the singer from Way
Out West (on Don't Look Now?). I thought this track would be an 'ah,
it's ok' track....however, it really grew on me after the second
listen. It's a very memorable track - every time I listen to it, I
end up singing/humming the words all day. I love the line (and the
way she sings it) "only fallen angels sing this loud!".
Last Man Standing
Love the groove of this track. It went down a storm at Global
Gathering and it never fails to get everyone around me when the CD
is on, tapping they feet or dancing around without realising. I keep
calling it Hooligan Spirit by accident, because it kinda sounds
quite hooligan-ish. The electric cello is fab. Cracking tune.
I dunno about this track. I doesn't catch my attention when it's
on...not helped by me wanting to call Last Man Standing it's name.
At first, I really didn't 'get' this track. It all sounded too dark
for me....but, then I listened to the lyrics a bit more and now I
really like it. It's quite a disturbing track (it's meant to be, I
spoke to Mike about it)...it creeps you out a bit...which I get now.
Keep It In The Family
Again, orchestration is great on this track...very Hollywood, very
Harry Gregson-Williams. Obviously. It sounds more like an interlude
to me. It's a snippet from a really good move. It's a moment of
beautifullness. This is the track that makes me want a full-on
orchestral cd from Hybrid.
Nice track...I appreciate it's really well done...but not really my
Takes me back to Morning Sci-Fi a little...it's the Peter Book base.
Loving the groove...great track to dance around to, bit of a
Gravastar feel to some of it.
Just For Today
Everyone knows Finished Symphony has been my favourite track since
it was released eons ago. No track has ever beaten it...but I had to
give that a really good re-think when I heard this track. When
Kirsty comes in it, it really pulls at my emotions. A really
beautiful peice of music that is really well done. I love it. I love
it. Does it beat Finished Symphony for me? The answer is...'it comes
very very close' :-)
