YOU COULDN'T REPLY BETTER, SWEET SISTER!!
@ Claudia I agree with you! You know that already, don't you? We're on the same wavelength, on which we are riding through Poets world
@Half Light ...And when it comes to elephants we are in good company, I think ...http://www.facebook.com/poetsofthefall?ref=ts#!/photo.php?fbid=114426518631461&set=o.7555982895&theater

Okay, and now to our party:

Oh, too bad!! But I'm quite sure this is not ALCHEMY End, but just ALCHEMY Beginning...
You'll see... Tomorrow will be a better day for ALCHEMY!
ALCHEMY Vol 1 - ABOUT THE SONGS
Five from Sign of Life
, three from Carnival of Rust
, two from Revolution Roulette
, three from Twilight Theatre
and two new singles.
Five songs from the first album could be a predictable choice, even if with Poets nothing is so predictable, for me at least, having still so much to learn about them... Late Goodbye
: to be honest is not among my super-favorite ones, but live is really great. Lift
: just one of my super-favs! Simply incredible, I just adore that reef (is it the right word?)! And Poets almost discared it from the album??! "MAD MEN"!!! Illusion & Dream
: beautiful, lyrics takes you at first hearing; I'd like to know exactly the reason why Poets found their inner voice as musicians with this song... Stay
: short lyrics, but so effective, useless to say my favorite line is "It's little things... that make the world."; and I apreciated very much the fragment of memories about this song, I started learning that lesson around nineteen years ago, this learning is going on, to a deeper level now... My adored Sleep
! The piano, "that" voice, so warm and in a so delicated singing, that in a final "crescendo" wraps you in a so protective embrace... How much this song would has been comforting in past! I wouldn't felt so alone in those tears-wet nights... I didn't expect such a fragment of memories, actually... Carnival of Rust
: my "galeotto" with Poets! A no-time and no-dimension song, infinitely beautiful and, as I already said other times, a Poets' creativity&mastery symbol-song. Locking Up the Sun
!!! How much I love this song!! I put it as my "political views" on my FaceBook profile, I get totally mad for this song: music, melody, lyrics, GUITARS!! And my answer to memories' fragment is :"WHAT??!"... Oh Roses
! Adorable Roses... it has been the second Poets' song I heard, after listening to this song I realized I had to check out this band, absolutely! Her "rural" taste gets you immediately and leads you to a love-path of fullcolored and nature-scented images... This is one of those POTF songs that let on me a sweet smile and a sense of interior peace/calm... There's a thing I really love in Roses, it's the way Marko "drags" (sorry but just don't know to explain it in a better way) his voice in the words: dying, sky, try... The Ultimate Fling
: great reef and fantastic guitar solo in the final, I like so much two moments of final part of this song: "Did I act like a fool (...) everytime you died." and "Can you gimme a reason, (...) I know what's the deal.", in their own totality... And Poets really had time in their hands, if they have been able to write such great song (and the beautiful Fragile) at a backstage of a show! Diamonds for Tears
: great rythm, great lyrics, all the power of feelings comes out through music and melody and by transport of Marko's "interpretation". Funny the fragment of memories about this song! Dreaming Wide Awake
!! What a dream! WHAT A DREAM!!! An unstoppable power river in flood of energy and emotions!! Expressing all desperation for the lost of "something" so precious and unique, to which you never resign yourself... When I finally discovered Poets, entering in this official site, this song was already released as new single and I realized I found my favorite band ever... And if from live song writing improvisation comes out such a powering product, then welcome to improvisations!! War
: beautiful, I love music's "stateliness" in this song. Pretty hard to separate it from Alan Wake, sometimes I forget War hasn't been written purposely for that subject... When I remember it, I read deepness and complexity of a relationship that sometimes comes to a dualism that only a strong and deep feeling is able to overcome... At least that's what I see through the lyrics... Given and Denied
: awesome and of such a grace and harmonious, with an unpretentious elegance. Listening to this song I imagine an old lord sit in front of a twilight sight on the sea, representing the time of his age, thinking on his (long) ending life, conscious of some things can't be lived again and other ones got lost forever; with a last nostalgic look to the time gone by of his youth... A so "thoughtful" song all, in its making too, if this is its eleventh version, indeed! And now the two new songs. Can You Hear Me
: I already posted a comment for it in its own thread; this song has been a delayed-action bomb, for me! And when "exploded", it revealed all its beauty, its being so touching, deep and pure in its own meaning... A perfect POTF song, new in sound, "puzzle" in lyrics, a treasure disclosed by its video too, really awesome in its own simplicity... And my last huge love No End, No Beginning
: what can I say? I'm totally in love with this song... I have no words to express what merging of emotions She makes me feel... I listen and re-listen to Her to infinite, completely hypnotized by her music, her melody, her lyrics... which, once again, seems to be fitted so perfectly in my life... I don't know... I really don't know how it's possible to create such a wonder and enchantment... I just can say thanks to Poets of the Fall, once again...
