03 July 2012 - 08:32 PMI think what makes this song, and what helps make this album, is the line "Mark, right on!" I don't know what it is about the line. I think it's mostly the nod to a fallen comrade that really touches me. There's something terribly beautiful in have this sort of acknowledgement/dedication early on in the album.
26 June 2012 - 03:07 PMThe opposite of Lightening, in my opinion, would be Owata; there's so much going on it gives me a headache-- everything is playing overtop everything else.
Thats an interesting point of view; I was JUST going to add earlier that Owata is probably the one track that has, for me, benefited from Oceania. Somehow it makes sense to me in all of its layers of sound and hyper emotion.
26 June 2012 - 01:09 PMOceania doesn't augment the first TGBK songs or necessarily make sense of them. They still succeed or fail based on their own merits. The biggest thing Oceania provides TGBK is freedom from expectation (which can be crushing)-- that's Oceania's burden now. While TGBK does provide some perspective on where the band was headed, that's the case with any band's oeuvre; no album exists in a vacuum!
Just listened to Song for a Son thru to Wildflower. And the evolution is odd. There's a notable gap between Part 1 & Oceania, with the Oceania songs feeling fuller, more fleshed out.
