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
