Yeah, I really like how all of their songs can have many different interpretations, depending on the person and mood. It's one of the reasons they're my favourite band.
YEP! Morning Tide
... how beautiful! The Dream... The Hope... the last one, maybe... ?
Have you any idea what means to listen to Temple of Thought
while walking on a desert beach?
It's just like a journey into another dimension, where time doesn't exist, it's only you and your own emotions, your own visions... And nature surrounding you is the only contact with reality, but you don't read it this way, cos also nature belongs to your own "imaginarium".
It's like a shamanic journey, where mind, heart and spirit meet each other, sharing their own experiences, to sense the truth concealed into the deepest self and to which, just outward contradiction, also the body contributes with all its physicality...
That, at least, is what happens to me, probably cos every single song of this album touches me deeply, somehow, sound included. It's the first time that a whole album involves me so personally, and I guess that's the reason why, after one month, I am still shocked...
The gentle sea breeze caressing my face, the scent of the sea and its sight getting lost into the horizon, with the sound of the waves breaking on the foreshore, (they) enhance the effect every song has on me.Running Out of Time
's rhythm opens me the doors of this journey, carrying me out of time
, exactly! Kamikaze Love
, The Lie Eternal
and Show Me This Life
are the most physical: my body quickens... and with TLE
it "switches turbo on" (can't share more than this, sorry).
To listen to Cradled in Love
, Morning Tide
sat few steps from the foreshore and The Distance
, while walking on the shore: what a pathos... These songs become one with the sea, feeling and sound merge into the scenery in front of me and into the sound of the waves (TD
- another physical one - and MT
are really incredible!)... And I get lost into the sorrow of that Love...Temple of Thought
... a warm light stream embracing me... and I allow it to do that, as if I was waiting just for that... A "revelation" breaking down my defenses and yes, taking away all my fears (which come back after a while, though...). And that's enough, cos pretty hard to explain more.The Ballad of Jeremiah Peacekeeper
: its disarming humanity, into such a scenery, leaves me on my knees and with tear-stained face... Do I need to add more?
And that's when I so need The Happy Song
! Just to not last.. lost into that carnival of emotions. Got the "bucket of water to the face" effect...TBoJP
as last two song of the album: for me just the right&better place, indeed!
And an advice: don't listen to CiL
(and also TBoJP
) all in a row, while being in front of the sea... they kill your heart&soul... Luckily the beach was desert and no one saw the tears on my face... P.S.
: Captain, I love you so! The sound of this album is... a gorgeous soundtrack! But believe me, I am really not able to express what I feel for it...
