Re: Something Shines - thread for reactions and general chatter

I bought it off iTunes this morning. am hoping to get a vinyl copy at one of her shows in the US (inevitable, I hope??).

I'm on my 3rd listen. I can say that I've reacted most favorably to the opening and closing tracks. of course, I really like the single that was released a few months ago. the sparse political track is clearly the one that people will have some beef with, but these call-to-action songs are a signature element on Lae's albums.

I think I need to listen a lot more before writing more feedback. Something Shines, off the bat, doesn't seem as immediate as Silencio. I'm eager to get it to know it better though. it'll be nice to listen to this later on my good speakers with a glass of wine.

Re: Something Shines - thread for reactions and general chatter

It seems to me as if Laetitia has made a conscious choice here to make a record that's more fragmentary and less accessible than Silencio.

e.g. in the longer, multi-part songs like Quantum Soup and The Scene of the Lie and Butter Side Up you can hear the joins. While the shorter songs feel like they could be parts of longer songs, if you see what I mean.

The Giorgio Tuma song ('Release from the Centre of Your Heart') is an obvious stand out, not least because it is a lot more polished and has a much bigger sound*. Here the relatively short length is a plus; yes it ends too soon for my liking, but if it had been longer it would have probably stood out more, unbalnced the album by overwhelming the other tracks.

*different studio & engineer, different musicians to the rest of the album
