I think I may actually like this more than the Love Song offering. What’s going on, guv? Lol
I’m still not sure about how much overdubbing has been done…dunno.
Jim’s voice seems more natural and recorded “on the night” than it does on Love Song.
I’m feeling a little more optimistic after this.
The other thing I would say is…it lacks a little bit of … guts … musically….acoustically. I mean, it’s a sonic assault to the ears, being at a Simple Minds concert, and this sounds like someone’s turned all the amps down. Dunno…
Maybe it was the way I listened to it? Through my in-ear phones on Spotify? It just …doesn’t fill the space I was expecting it to sonically. I’m not wording it right, but I know what I feel it’s lacking. I’m just not articulating it very well.
I’ll have to listen to Love Song again and see if it suffers the same thing.
I’m assuming like other recent releases, we’ll get a new song to listen to each week or so until release day.
