The half way mark is really where things start to change, and this is incredibly clever structuring considering the topic of the song.
At times it feels like the beginning – a new day, a fresh start. At other times it feels unbearably like the end. An achingly beautiful album.
My earlier albums each had a story or theme. A river, a planet, a person, someone who inspired me. Four was total improvisation, a stream of consciousness.
The music is gentle but intense; it builds, without getting noisy. The story unfolds, the poetry of it soaks into you.
When I stopped listening – I felt as if I’d been on some immense journey. The power of art is alight, and being waved high above the world with this album.
