Maybe my expectations were set too high when Heather called Pearl, Oyster II.

I just got the new Lana Del Rey cd and I'm already addicted to it ! What a difference to Pearl, I have to force myself to listen to it and still don't like it... I listened to Oyster from 1994 to 1996 every evening, what a difference, too sad.

I just got the new Lana Del Rey cd. Although it's very similar to her previous work, I like it a lot, contrary to Heathers new cd, where I always skip the songs and it's over before I know !

I could listen to the new Lana Del Rey cd for hours ! Hopefully she'll do a gig in Belgium in februari 2020

I have to agree with 57Arietis. Pearl is definitely not a second Oyster, despite the same sound on some songs. It's all soft, cheesy, mellow …

South might be overproduced but I love most songs on them.

To me Pearl is in the same league as Yasmine Flower, 300 days at sea etc. I hope I will change my mind by listening more often to those songs but I don't …


I listen to it, and skip song after song, hoping for a great song but before I know it, the cd is over ...

quote from Rainman "I agree Pearl is not Oyster II but I wasn't expecting it anyway, and when Heather is hinting it, she can only disappoint people expecting it.
Guess what ? There will never be another Oyster. Because 25 years passed, because Heather has changed, because we have changed.
Whatever quality of the songs Heather can release now, we know her, we know her voice, her melody style, her lyrics tricks... For any artist that has such a long career, there's inevitable loss of what makes the first albums unique for people who loved them at that time : the freshness, the novelty, the energy of youth, the background of 25 years of life put in 10 songs.

When people says they want another Oyster, more than a lyric, a melody, a sound, what they want back is the first emotion they had listening to the songs and Heather for the first time. They want the first kiss sweetness. They want their youth back. And that will never happen."

That's so true, I couldn't have said it better. I still remember seeing Heather live the first time, Club Paficic Antwerp, 16/12/1994. I know what the weather was like (cold), what I wore (red jeans, black pullover, black leather jacket) and the gig was 1000x better than what I had expected and it has changed my life ! I must have seen Heather 100x live since then and although it's always 'good' or 'amazing', I never got that feeling of the first time back

Unfortunately I still don't like most of the songs... I skip them to hear the next one and before I know, the cd is over … It's definitely not Oyster II (I'd call Siren, Oyster II), more like Yasmine or 300 days.

Maybe hearing the songs live changes my mind

When Oyster was released (october 1994) I listened to it every evening for 3 years. I did skip WTW as I thought it was a rip off of Sheryl Crow's All I wann do …

I'm just saying I don't feel the need to listen to Pearl everyday now ...

Btw I guess the German people will understand the Volkskrant interview, it might be harder for the French and English speaking people

- The Volkskrant interview is the best and longest interview of Heather I've ever read. Funnily enough they keep mentioning Heather was born on the 6th of juli 1968, which is in my opinion, not correct, she was born in 1967.

- I had to buy the cd and lp separately. If you just buy the lp, I doubt there is a cd or a download link …

- I must get used to the new cd. It's definitely no second Oyster unlike what Heather says. Maybe in a few weeks I'll like it more, now I have mixed feelings about it

I've seen her live in Bremen last year and although it was 'good' we were sitting so far from the stage (seated gig) it was like watching tv, so I didn't really enjoy it

No, it's all 'I'm so in love, I'm so happy' or 'I love my son' … No pain, weltschmerz, sadness … but there are other bands for that

I got the cd yesterday and listened a few times to it. It definitely has a more rocking sound, a bit like Oyster. However, I'm not convinced yet, I find the lyrics too mellow, soft and without risk. No intensity. Well maybe I need to get used to it.

There is a signing session before the gig, in the nearby Fnac in Leuven. You might run the risk of missing the gig of the amazing Hydrogen Sea though …

I just heard that the support acts of Heather will be Geike (the amazing former singer of Hooverphonic) and the equally great Hydrogen sea. I must be dreaming !

Just bought one ticket. Internet Explorer seemed to struggle with the midzomer site, so I used Google Chrome. A tip for the other people …

It wouldn't surprise me Heather will play other gigs in Belgium or the Netherlands that week or weekend. Would be great

I was there as well (obviously) and it was one of the best concerts of Heather I've seen in years.

- Great location (Heather was impressed with the Belfort - obviously you don't get such old buildings in Bermuda)
- Great light and sound
- Not too many people (500)
- Very respectfull crowd, very quiet.
- Drinking wasn't allowed during the gig so you didn't hear any glasses fall. I didn't even see any people smoking although it was outside
- The weather was great : dry, not too warm nor too cold
- Not a lot of people filming the concert with their phone
- The concert lasted 100 minutes, not too short but not too long either
- But above all : a great mix of old and new songs, albumsongs and classics (but not soo many it became a best of)
- Heather and Arnulf were in a good mood
- And off course lots of nice people in the public of which a lot of familiar faces


Can't wait for Rotterdam

Off course it's great for the people who never saw Heather in 1994-1996 (I was 25 in 1994 and saw her for the first time on 16/12/1994). Off course I loved the current tour too.

I've seen Heather 3x live on this tour and just downloaded (bought) the Heerlen recordings. I must say that on the actual Oyster tour (1994-1996), the songs were more intense. Compare the current recordings to Live from the Milky Way for instance. Now Heather is more emphasizing on her voice and not on the music. Well maybe I'm wrong, and I'm romanticising the old gigs. But off course it was great ! And nice to hear Blind for the first time live. What do you guys think ?
