I just wish that this era last for more than one album. That's all I want. But if it's their final word - it's good one.
I don’t like Empire of the Clouds, and I’m having trouble understanding why. I know one thing I really dislike about the song is the vocals near the end. It’s a captivating story, and as it builds it gets harder and harder to understand Bruce. During the climax, at it’s most crucial point, I have no idea what he’s singing.
Anyone else have this problem? I have a good pair of headphones, and a decent set of speakers, and it makes no difference, can’t understand a thing at the end. It causes the story to fall flat. All this build up, and than, who knows..
There are actually a few songs on this album where I can hardly make out any of what Bruce is saying, but it affects this song the most.
Now, don’t go calling me a negative Nancy, there is lots to love on this album, and a lot still to digest, and I’ll get to all that, I was just curious what you guys thought about this. As for you Debbie downers, and pessimistic Patties.. trying borrowing some of that infectious enthusiasm others are sporting, it’s more fun that way.
2 - Those who have pre-paid/will pay for the album - congratulations, you've got it 6 days early. I look forward to hearing what you got for christmas when you open all your presents on 19th December. You joyless bastards....
