Everything people have said about this cd is right. That it takes a while to absorb just what a gem it is. I liked it right away; but now its really sinking in just what a masterpiece it is.

The sound is so open, yet its so intricate too. An amazing work of production. If every album could have such clear-sounding insturments and lyrics, we'd be in great shape. All the songs are just really solid and focused on that one.

The lyrics come to you over time, and their meaning starts sinking in here and there as they go through your mind.

Its almost like there was some kind of a supernatural force overseeing every touch on that one. Every time I hear it, I'm more and more amazed, and delighted.

I don't know of any other album or sound to compare it to, either. It really just stands out by itself, as a very unique and beautiful work of art. I'm playing it again right now; and the thing is just amazing.

Seems like one of the best-kept secrets in pop-rock history, if you ask me.

Total agreement Chrome.

I used to think Fearful Symmetry was my favourite but once I had to start voting off DFBB songs in the survivor threads I found how much I love this album.

Well, of course God is/was overseeing all their projects; but its almost like the angels were working OT on this one to make sure that it turned out extra-special.

DFBB... strong points, weak points:

Strong points: moments of greatness, some timeless songs, great theme
Weak points: choppy music, rampant dissonance

I've been a fan for over 20 years. I consider myself fortunate to have bought the CD when it was first released (it's scratched and battered now - how about a re-release? Wink ) But this one is a tough nut to crack. Right up there with Bibleland.

I'm someone who has great respect for DA for a lot of reasons - in particular creativity, diversity, intelligence, and spiritual depth. But musically I also value pleasing sounding melodies. I think that's why my personal favorites are MBD and MC.

Depends on your tastes, I suppose.

If melody is your muse, I can't help but agree with you on MBD and MC.

But if you can't hear the brilliant melodies in Beat Menace, Strange Animals, Divine Instant,,,,aw heck all of them, then I don't think you're really listening for melody.

Hard strikes on the strings, questioning chords and indigestive bass may be what's putting you off. I would hardly blame the melody.

Still, MBD aside, this is their most creative, cohesive, collaborative and correct album to date.

That said, I'm often right and often wrong but never inconsistent.


I think.

I'll reserve judgement till I have a chance to ask Terry:

Does DFBB have a specific purpose, mission or goal as a recording? And if so, what is it?


its the only original DA CD I have that survived the purge- my kid bought it- and I stole it from him, to make up for 19 yers of room and board.
Fair Trade?

thanks pup.

Glad to be back.

I've been in and out. Busy days here at the office.

Wanna drool? I'm having lunch today with a former member of Daniel Amos! Nothing business, just a friendly visit, but as a fan I feel like I'm going to meet the President, or better, Arnold!!
