The first time I saw Heather live, it was on Redbird tour ; the show was good, but absolutely not the best I saw since then.

I have ordered on Amazon and the album hasn't arrived either, strangely. I should have received it sooner, but as son as Pearl came out, I got a message to say the order would arrive later than expected.

Well, it's always a bit risky to tease something like "my new album will be like Oyster-you-very-favourite-one, with similar production, but with songse ven better".
She took the risk (she asked the wind to dance).

I see what she means, though : cello, electric guitar, same producer... but as for songs, they're not as good. Oh, I'm not complaining, i like the sound of the album, I really like some songs, and tDon't Worry What The Experts Say it the only song I dislike, which is few. But I don't think my topten HN songs will contain Pearl songs.

That's why I wrote "personnally", and "for me", and "my taste".

I notice that I usually prefer dark Heather songs. At some point, I mustn't be the only one, and the fact that Rewild Me and STJCU being among the favourites of almost everyone on the next album is noticeable, but the principle doesn't necessarily apply to the rest of Heather's discography...

I guess the different opinion we hold on oyster can explain a lot, too ; if you don't put Oyster very high, you are probably more attached to it via what you mentioned tonight : memories, youth, etc.

Oyster is still my favourite album, though it isn't linked to anything sentimental for me : I bought the album, it stayed on my shelve for a while, with years I appreciated it more and more, when my tastes grew less mainstream, when I had improved in English, etc. And I guess Oyster tour 2 years ago was the best HN show I attended, to my mind, though clearly (and unfortunately) softened compared to recordings from the real Oyster tour 25 years ago. I think it's the strongest album Heather ever wrote, but well, that's just my opinion.

I agree for the first part of your message : there will never be an Oyster II because Heather Nova has changed, because 25 years have passed, because she's older now (and because, as far as we known, noone abused her like the Island guy did, precisely since the Island guys did it, decades ago, which is good news ).

But I didn't discover Heather with Oyster, but with South. I quickly bought all of her albums, and at first, Oyster wasn't my favourite, at all. Maybe I was too young to appreciate it. Maybe songs like Blue Black, Island or Light Years weren't as radio-friendly for me back then (I was young...) . I'm no Angel and London Rain were more of my taste at that time.

So, for me, another Oyster wouldn't be at all my youth back or the first kiss or anything like this : another Oyster would be an album with lyrics and music as powerful as what Heather expressed in this album.
An album as strong as Oyster is.

But Oyster and Glow Stars are full of hard and intense experiences shared by Heather, with the Island-Sugar guy concerning the dark songs, and full of the enormous relief she felt after that for the lighter ones. Same for Glow Stars, my second favourite album.

My third favourite album is The Way It Feels, written by Heather when she was going through very difficult times of her life. Well, it's quite logical, and many people pointed out that fact, among them, Tolstoy at the beginning of Anna Karenine.

I guess that personally, I find more strength and intensity in songs Heather wrote about very intense and hard times, though I am also very fond of happier songs like Everytime or Make You mine.

I a probably not the only one to think this way, and we can notice that almost everyone on this topic quoted Rewild Me and Some Things Just Come Undone as their favourite songs on Peralr, i-e the least zen songs on the whole album.

VINCENT

Dm G C F A
Vincent, yours is the first name I've ever sung
Dm G C F A
Sometimes life is a movie and it's only just begun.

Waves are crashing through my veins, I'm overcome
Sometimes, life is a movie and it's just begun.

Dm G
And the stars will make us wild,

And the dark will make us hesitate, but that's our fate,
Dm G
The stars will make us wild
C F A
It's not too late for us.

I want to laugh, sing Autumn Leaves, and whistle grass with you
I want to lie under any kind of sky.

Chorus

Dm G C F A x2

Les vagues viennent s'ťcraser dans mes veines et je m'enivre,
Vincent, je veux only to be with you.

Chorus

The stars will make us wild
It's not too late for us.

OVER THE FIELDS

C

C G Am
Heard you slipped into the light we cannot see,
C G Am
Behind the veil and the songs,
C G Am
Reaching out to those who came to you in dreams -

F Em
Over the fields you go,
F Em
Over the wreckage in slow motion,
F Em
Everything that you used to know,
Am G
All the weight, all the weight you can let go.

And you remember making angels in the snow,
A flash of who you could have been.
Begin the journey you that started long ago -

Chorus

Em Am F Em
Am F Em Em

And all apologies and all the damage done,
Somehow you never found the key,
It's coming to you now as you head into the sun -

Over the fields you go,
Over the wreckage in slow motion,
Over the fields you go,
Over the wreckage in slow motion,
Everything that you used to know,
All the weight, all the weight that you can let go,
All the weight, all the weight you can let go,
Am G
All the weight, all the weight,
Am G
All the weight.
Am ~
All the weight.

After All This Time changed a little bit on the album. Producer's idea, probably. On the last album, the Archaeologist had some minor hanges beteen the acoustic version by Heaher before the recording, and the album version.


Heather Nova
AFTER ALL THIS TIME

C G/B Am
When you find him, when you find the one

When you find itís, where your soul belongs

Put your hands out, nothing breaks your fall

Take a leave now, gonna risk it all

Years of stillness, like a winterís frost
Never really knew how much Iíd lost
Every cell now coming back to life
Every breath now in a different light


F G Am
I donít wanna shut my eyes
F G Em E7
Iím open to the pain that might be coming
Dm Em F
This is what I never thought I find

Real love after all this time

When it finds you, everything is clear
All the roads you took have brought you here
Looking up now to an endless sky
Tears are coming and you donít know why

C Em C Em E Dm G G

I donít wanna shut my eyes E7
Iím open to the joy that might be coming, yeah
This is what I never thought I find
Real love after all this time

I donít wanna shut my eyes E7

You were just a child holding tight, in those ocean swells, why can't you see yourself ?

You think everybody else has got it made,

But can't you see we're all in pieces ?

You got knocked down, spinning out, salt got in your mouth.
Stung your eyes, I know it still matters, still hurting, feel it inside.

You think everybody else has got it made,

My animal part, the divine.

As always, we do not know what songs were written else for the album and might never be made public.

About DWWTES, I'd call it a diary song. It's a song that fits to what Heather had to say Vincent some times ago, and I guess it's very classical : a marriage breaking, and psy doctors finding a "logical" explanation to everything, for example his new (at that time) relationship with Heather. It's great that Heather wrote this song to answer him, and having songs like that writtent for him makes him a lucky guy, I' sure. It's very vute to communicate with songs and poetry. But the song, who's a very cute way to communicate, is not art. It's a song that probably had to be written for Heather Frith and Vincent Lions, but I don't see what makes it find a deseved place on Heather Nova album. The music is boring, the lyrics are not original at all, nor poetic.

How I wish it had been replaced by Rose Gold.

Rewild Me, Some Things Just Come Undone and See Yourself seem to make us all agree.

The song we skipt most often differ a bit more. For me, it's still Don't Worry What The Experts Say. Honestly, I "don't" see the point of this song.


Just like Gerd, I expect some songs to be really cool live. For example, I am eager to hear All The Rivers on tour, while on the ablum, I find it's an okay song, with very fine music, but lyrics a bit too plain in places.

That's what I said.

Berit will play lead guitar, so Vincent playing is not to be for granted, at all. Or as a bassist, but that would be surprising.

I used to play with a musician some times ago, and indeed, it gave the songs another dimension.

Well, in the future, maybe....

... on a small acoustic tour, and acoustic guitar parts are easier than long, electruc, solos.

Well :
- the tour is anounced on Berit's agenda, so Berit will be lead guitar on the tour.
- if Berit is lead guitar, Vincent isn't (unless Heather does want two leads guitar, which doesn't really make sense)
- either Vincent will play someting else, or he won't play in this tour.

Vincent maybe won't play in the shows. Recording is something, and Vincent did it great, but you can mess up and start again, things like that. I am not sure Vincent feels comfortable enough to play live, with other musicians, when any wrong note, any error, will affect the whole band.

There will be a bassist, probably Arnulf, who can play other intruments, which is always useful.

There's something strange about Storm : apart from I Wanna be Your light, I like all the songs, but if I listen the whole album, I enjoy it but not THAT much. I guess it has too much echo and high-pitches instruments and voice, which kind of gives me headache (I'm very sensitive to sounds, and high-pitched ones).

Spread the songs into two albums with other songs less high-pitched in between, and I'll enjoy them twice more.
