i've got a copy to review and I'm about a third of the way through it... it's good!
Tell mester to f*ck off!
It is helpful ! thanx
kinda what i was expecting. All piano + voice + few strings.
I guess the next one, if there ever is one, will be heavy metal
Some are born to greatness, some are born to die.
I don't, which proved a little difficult in translating the thing! It's really a pretty rough translation but there were only a few places where I didn't understand what was being said, the majority of it is readable.
I've just gone ahead & put everything in a google drive folder, the most recent interview is in the folder called "SPEX":
The titular track is lyrically quite reminiscent of some of the background that fed into the themes of This Is Hardcore (alone in a hotel room watching porn, having a nervous breakdown - ie Jarvis when touring Different Class). The piano is sparse and pretty again but I hope there's some "fuller sounding" songs to come with Jarvis singing more. It does seem however that there will be quite a bit of storytelling through the record which is more likely to lend itself to lots of spoken-word.I see that the album's running time is 50 minutes long so I wonder if they're going to have to stretch the set with other songs at the live shows. Or maybe Jarvis' in between song patter and the theatricality involved might take the set comfortably past an hour. It would be interesting though if the musicians on-hand could contribute to delving into Jarvis' back-catalogue for the encore.
Even if Pulp is a no-go respected area it would be great to hear some of the less guitar/rock of the solo material. Maybe a few numbers from stuff like Big Julie, I Will Kill Again, Disney Time and Baby Coming Back To Me from the debut, Hold Still and Slush from Further Complications and Likely Stories from last year's soundtrack EP.
Or maybe we'll just get a few other songs that Jarvis and Chilly have written or covered. I remember seeing one or two on YouTube before.
*Some listens later* The title track is genius. Looking forward to the rest of the album now. Is no one else?!

Hi andy, is this any good for you?
We'll use the one thing we've got more of, that's our minds.
