I haven't commented here in years, but I've been listening to the album all weekend, and thought I should come over and give my two cents.

Anyway, I wasn't blown away the first time I listened to it, but the more I listened, the more I like it. The vocals seem a bit atonal and off kilter on the first listen through, but not after, and the instrumentation is killer. I was surprised that most of the songs were 5-6 minutes, which is not DA-like, but it really gives Greg, Tim, Jerry, and the rest of the guys the necessary time to pull off some cool stuff.

I was trying to describe what it sounded like to my dad.."it's reminds me a little of john wayne, some similarities to motor cycle and buechner, but with major differences.." I ended up helplessly referencing just about everything the guys had done in the past twenty years, because it really does have its own identity.

Sorry if this is rambling and unfocused, but please pass along my thanks for the album, and if they want to do this again next year, I might even spring for the vinyl next time Big Grin

It's interesting to me that if you were to ask different Journey fans what their favorite songs from that band are you'd have nearly identical lists. Same is true for most bands. But when you talk about Daniel Amos, you'd get 50 different answers for every 100 people you asked. It really says something about Daniel Amos.

...At least I think it's interesting.


Thanks.

I think it means that DA is the band that has something for everybody and everything for no one. And as soon as they build a fan base, they move in a different direction (musically). Cool

I have Fernado Ortega's Home and Camino Largo CDs, which are both great folk/pop/light-rock/country/spanish albums.

Look at the album credits for Home:
Fernando Ortega

Phil Madeira, Tim Chandler, David Raven, Matt Slocum and many, many others.


Wow, I didn't realize that.

A new DA album would be great. I'd definitely buy the "I'm not sure what it is but it's definitely not a preorder but it sort of has the same purpose" disc.

Fact: The Swirling Eddies list Ruth Buzzi as a source of inspiration on Spittle & Phlegm.

Fact: She is also cited as a major influence on the band on the band's MySpace page and elsewhere.

Fact: The Swirling Eddies' alter ego, Daniel Amos, covered the song "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" on their strange Eddies-like Songs of the Heart.

Amazing Fact That Will Blow Your Mind: Ruth Buzzi covered Can't Take My Eyes Off You on the Muppet Show.

Coincidence? I think not!!!

Which just goes to show; What other strange influences lie hidden in the past of this remarkable band? Only history will tell-----or obscure.

Jason, Larry Norman consistently telling different stories about what happened is consistent with him having brain damage, whether from the plane crash or otherwise. And quite frankly, his behavior makes a lot more sense if he does have something physiologically wrong with his brain.

I'll try the wacky fan letter.

Daniel Amos
C straight country=meh. it's very good for what it is, and actually the best song from this era-Ain't Gonna Fight it-isn't even on the album. Is there a story behind this?the

Shotgun Angel
B- Father's Arms is easily the best countryish song they ever did, and the 2nd half of the album is very creative.

Horrendous Disc
B Very good, definitely progress from the country sound. More notable for what it was to the CCM scene than artistic quality.

Alarma
B+ I like the new wave sound. Stands up well to many Talking Heads and other new wave albums.

Doppelganger
A- What makes this better than Alarma? Tim Chandler, it's better lyrically, and it's more creative.

Vox Humana
B- Sanctuary is a great song, although I'd love to hear a de-synthed version of it. Too much synth here, and it screams at points "we need a lead guitarist".

Fearful Symmetry
B- Then when the band gets a lead guitarist, they need to use him more. Other than that, the Pool is a great song, Beautiful One is very good, and there's enough different stuff to keep the album afloat.

Darn Floor Big Bite
A+ Words fail me Wink

Kalhoun
B+ Very good all the way around

Motor Cycle
A+ Not as good as DFBB, but excellent. It sounds like they had a lot of great material, were trying to figure out which of it to use, and someone said "let's put all of it in". It has sort of an Abbey Road feel to it.

Bibleland
B More inconsistent than most of their other stuff. Broken Ladders, I'll Get Over It are great, Stone Away, The Bubble Bursts are very good, but songs like Constance of the Universe and Theo's Logic seem too overproduced for punk, and too disoriented for anything else.

Songs of the Heart
B underrated, but some of the songs (Loveland, Sins of the Fathers) seem to miss their mark.

Mr. Buechner's Dream
A Excellent in quality and length. Not quite as good at it's best as Motor Cycle or DFBB, but that's no shame.
