It lacks flow a little, and the synths shouldn't be quite so omnipresent, but I like this one a hell of a lot more than Aeronaut. Much more subdued than the live versions and while I think it's better for that, it really feels like an album closer rather than a "track 3".

Well, it's not terrible. One of his better post-original band songs. I just wish he didn't restrict himself to an "acoustic" album. I wouldn't mind some minimal beats or something. The synths are a nice addition. But I do kinda wish the album wasn't entirely beatless.

It's too fucking slow! The electric version was way better!

+ I think I've heard that intro somewhere else:

Listen to it without the video. I don't hate whatever they're going for there - though I do feel like I just watched one of those trailers that shows the whole movie - but it's just such a distraction.

i want to like this but it sounds like he's singing gibberish and the verse melody is not compelling enough to make that irrelevant. song can't rest on only the chorus, which ultimately makes this a failure

aeronaut i still like

Why did you call the song "The Spaniards?"

Oh because it's meaningless. The video also means nothing, and is drenched in my own bad taste. Any other questions?

Uh that beginning vocal melody sounds an awful lot like the third part of "Oceania"

It’s unreal to me how tuneless the verses are. Ther s no melody at all, he’s just lazily strumming the guitar and rambling and making oooooh noises

his ego may have ruined his songwriting skills. he clearly thinks him ooohing, like you said, is good enough.

or maybe it was just old age

Cool song, love the double-tracked vox on the chorus, live version was slightly better but w/e. Not nearly as good as Aeronaut.

I figured the song would lose its live bombast once it was on BC's solo album. Bet he wants to save the SHREDDING for the SP name.

Doesn't matter much to me, I like both forms.

Well this did it, I was gonna give the album a chance but this is the worst fucking song by anybody I've heard in a long time, and I've heard "Aeronaut"

If I ever post in the future hinting that I've listened to this album I want you to shame me for breaking my vow
