Re: Cost of "You want it darker" on Amazon.co.uk

Plenty of alternatives to Amazon. Ones that pay their taxes, too.

Re: Title song 'You Want It Darker' now on YouTube and Spotify etc

Or buffet style spirituality. Ignore the defrosted crabcakes and the limp discoloured sweet potatoes. Go for the lemon chicken and the asparagus. Ha, nice. Reminds me of the classic Simpsons episode: Brother Faith: "When I was your age, I was a hellraiser, too. My slingshot was my cross. But I saw ...

Re: Title song 'You Want It Darker' now on YouTube and Spotify etc

Does it really matter one bit if there was an edit or there were multiple takes of his vocal track? (not directed at you Judas but at the NPR article). Punching in vocals is a common practice in recording to begin with. And regardless, it takes not an iota away from the brilliance of this song or t...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Without putting everyone on a downer, I truly believe this will be Leonard's last album. From the press release referring to it as a culmination of all his works, to Adam referring to it as an "Urgent" album, his words to Marianne before she passed, the lyrics of the new song, and the speed of whic...

Re: Title song 'You Want It Darker' now on Spotify etc

Its a beautifully produced and arranged track, it really does underline those previous comments which said the album is a step up sonically from the last two.

And thematically? Is it safe to say this is Leonard enlisting against the Devil?
