Pop Goes The People Album Review (PT 1) *See Honey for PT 2*
Everytime you release a new album I truly am moved more than I am by any other album I own. I constantly listen to music, since I practically need it while driving. Your style is constantly changing. It is almost as if this is composed completely by different people. I truly am shocked you are able to put everything together so nicely and quickly. Your produce so elegantly with so much emotion. Every pluck of your guitar strings, every melodic synth, and the entire symbolic representation of life in each of our perspectives in the frequent use of pads all come together to truly make a musical experience. I smile when listening to your music, as I do with this album. Your simple lyric style is very addictive, offering a definite replay value, again and again. I find myself replaying your songs, singing along while closing my eyes and shaking my head back and forth to the nice beat. Let's take a moment to break down each song.
Start to Begin
What an intro! I immediately understand the theme of this album when I hear that guitar come in. The less observed perceptions of life are offered in a bright universe portrayed with singing, guitar playing, and light, easy lyrics to tie everything together. You have a great voice, isolating me into my own little world against the chaos of everyday life. I can truly observe a vision of sorts, as if you are taking me out of my seat and showing me the world on a different level. I enjoy the interesting and original electronic additions to this song, along with every other song. I never know what to expect. Excellent mixing, sounds, and composition. I can't wait to see what is next in this little world of yours.
Ahh yes, the Treefella EP, a song about wondering and waiting for someone to come join you in your tree. I remember hearing this in your album "Treefella". The entire song is recorded with a lot of headroom, making the lyrics a little hard to understand. I have grown quite fond of that, however, and find myself playing it on long trips across the State. It always offers a happier look on isolation for me. If I'm alone, I feel like I am simply waiting in my tree for someone else to come along and join me in my world. The thing is, being alone in a tree isn't all that bad. You get to overlook the entire world while keeping your head up. I enjoy this song, and it is my favorite on your treefella album.
I see you have gotten much better in live recordings, improving from the slightly hard to understand Treefella. This song REALLY made me smile. You sure know how to play different styles of guitars! I am very impressed by just how many riffs, acoustic melodies, and electric slides you put in here. You have quite a lot of talent to play all of that and layer it accordingly. If this is ever played live by a few capable guitar players, I would love to hear it! It is the kind of song that makes you want to get up, talk to people, have a bit of fun, and dance till the sun goes down.
This is a touching song full of regret for your own self awareness of flaws, seemingly impossible to change. The pad that comes in after 1:30 is incredible. This kind of electronic buildup and transition is the kind of unexpected, simply wonderful and amazing ingenuity that really makes me open my mouth wide and say "wow". After this, it is almost as if the feeling of acceptance overtakes my body. Its ok to have flaws. Its ok to be you. Ironically enough, this track ends without any show to change the problem. This is what traps the track in time in a artistic and beautiful way.
Woah, you have been busy;)
Nice voice overs, and the guitar isn't bad either! Well Done!
Ahh after a long absence from newground's after 3-5 yr's i find this song its very nicely made. Keep it up
Beautifully, so pristinely, so epically composed and produced.
Thanking you kindly;)
