Yup - he was tired of all the guitarslinger BS and just wanted to play. And he wasn't afraid to put his heart on his sleeve and let the most raw emotions he was feeling come out. The record is all the better for it. It reeks of honesty. And it's definitely one of my top twenty albums of all time.
It's top 10 for me. Eric Clapton and Duane Allman? Fuhgettaboutit.
BTW... Thread title totally = great album title.... or record label
And yup... don't know what the hell Jeremy had going on during that time period, but good grief there's some really strong stuff on that Fire Theft album. I wish I could sing... and if I could, I wish to hell i could sing with as much passion has he's got going on in Heaven once it kicks in.
You on the other hand are lucky... you've got the voice with that vocal power... can't wait to hear the music that comes outta this.
Ha NP. Wasn't trying to kiss ass or anything. For me when I've got **************** like that built up in me, I want to badly to just let it out... like a blood letting so it doesn't just churn and churn in my head, but it's difficult for me.
I can sometimes get that out with playing... but I never seem to be able to channel it to produce a cohesive musical piece.... let alone something where I've been able to express myself with my own words and voice.
