This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

Recommended Posts

This is a great album with heartfelt songs, I have spent the past 20 years working away from home Landlady felt so personal. I don't have a key !

I love the album so much!!!!

My favorite song is by far Book of Your Heart--to me this is a perfect synthesis of the band's career. Too bad it's only on the Deluxe edition of the album. I don't understand why it's not on the regular album...

Each time I listen to the record, I hear something new. It has been a grower for me. I wasn't that thrilled after hearing it from the start. Call me crazy, but I liked SOI from the start.

Love the way they ignite the lightbulbs on this performance akind to the big lightbulb Bono swung over his head on the opening live tracks during the 'Innocence' Tour.  A definite connection for me between the two albums.

GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY is scoring a tad more than a couple others, for me.

On the backing singers concept, I like the idea of simply having a  really vocally talented lady and gent.

It's just occurred to me that Adam's bassline on Red Flag Day bears a bit of similarity with the one on The Troubles. Seems the callbacks to SOI aren't just lyrical.

Agree, they're also symbolic - just amended my last you tube share - lightbulbs.

That is a cool song.

 

My son must be getting into my era of music a fair bit - loves the drums- and mentioned to me yesterday that RED FLAG DAY's opening sounds like the start of something The English Beat might have put out....ska with your tea anyone ?!
