If she does, you'll erase this message.

Thanks for your kind offer, I'd be very curious to see it, indeed.

Heather played indeed a dangerous game, presenting Pearl as Oyster II.

Yes, but I had pushed a button by mistake, I "edited" Gerd's post instead of "relpying" it.

I noticed that today, so remove my asnwxer from Gerd's post an pasted my reply in a proper post.

If I am going to see a pub owner, and say "hey, I can come and play gig in your pub" and give him a deo with a lot of midi instruments, the bar owner won't know what it's like to have me playing in his pub : will I come with some other musicians ? Midi background ? Or just my guitar, but what will it sound like ?

If I come with demos like those on Facebook, what he hears is what he gets, which is much better for the pusposes I seek for now.

Yes, I remember midi was very convenient when we did recordings a decade ago.

Now, I need organic demos, in order to show people who might ask me to play in their pubs or so what it's like if I play live.

You should use the piano more often. It gives incredible class to the beginning of the song.

The rest is fine as well. Somewhat vintage, but really refreshing ; I like it.

I like See Yourself as well, at least for its music ; lyrically, I admit I'm not font of the "when you're broken it's alright" thing.

I quite or really like every song you mention, but I think I could easily find 20 HN songs from previous albums that I prefer. Well, I speak for now. I didn't spoil myself by listening to the recording, but I might change my mind after hearing Berit playing Rewild Me.

... she said something like Pearl being like Oyster (same producer, same sound) ut even better because containing better songs.

The explanation is simple : she wrote most of the songs at the beginning of a great relationship, when she was happy as can be, she started arranging the songs with her boyfriend (in the best circumstances possible), she recorded the album with her boyfriend and other people she likes very much. She spent an amazing time, and thus is very enthusiastic.

Personally, I have mixed feelings : I can enjoy listening to the album for its global sound, for its electric guitar, and for being able to listen almost as a whole (I only skip Experts), I like some songs a lot, Rewild Me, Some Things, and I like some others (Over The Fields, All The Rivers), but if I try to make my Heather top 20 songs, there will probably be no Pearl. Unless we classify liver versions, and the tour is so great that we adore live versions, of course.


That is why I still put Pearl higher than my less liked albums (the general sound is fine), but neither in my favorite ones (there are no amazing songs). IMO, of course.

The article has a link to Pearl's wikipedia page. On the wikipedia page, Pearl is presented as an kind of Oyster II. I thought about our conversations here.

I wonder if this will be mainly the setlist (including the cover song) for the autumn tour as well. Hopefully not...
Not that I expect a lot of TJF songs on a full band tour, but no songs from two of my favourite albums is disappointing. And there are definitely tracks from Redbird, which would fit very well for this tour, e.g. Overturned. Not one of my dearest songs, but it's good and hardly ever played. Or Redbird itself.
Would be nice to hear Ruby Red again, too, not to mention some Glowstars songs...


Yes, it's a pity there is no glowstars songs.

Heather Nova said, more or less, that when she did the recent Oyster tour, she enjoyed it a lot, and she realized that rocking had missed her, and that's why she wanted a rock album, an album that would song like oyster = rock and cello, and Youth for producer. OK.

On Oyster tours, there were no (musically) "smooth" songs like Sea Glass or I Wanna Be your Light, nor classic safe-pop songs like London Rain or like Lovers Do (London Rain was taken for music in Dawson, a teenage series, because it fits to the radio pop rock codes).

In Oyster tour, there were loud rock songs and acoustic songs with a cello. So, there's a room for Motherland, for example (and Shaking The Doll, but I doubt Heather will play again), and even for a (very) few Redbird songs : I Miss My Sky and Overturned.

I don't say that jut because London Rain, Like Lovers Do and I Wanna Be Your Light are not my favourite. I Wanna Be Your Light is a song I don't appreciate, but when played on an acoustic or semi-acoustic tour, I can't complain, it fits to the setlist and to the tour. London Rain, on a Redbird tour is just normal. And so on. But when she has a Berit, they can rock ! And when she has a cellist (she will, in autumn), she can pick up songs when the cello has a bigger place !

Well, I'm eager for the autumn tour to start anyway.

In order to let Berit amaze us once again, I'd suggest replacing Like Lovers Do by Just Been Born, London Rain by Make You Mine (or I'm The Girl ?, or even Iím Alive, with its short but powerful break ?), Higher Ground by Do Something That Scares You, See Glass and I Wanna Be Your light by something that leaves the occasions for the musicians to express their talent.
With adding a few very calm songs so we can fully enjoy the cello.

Thanks to our member Cyrille, I saw the video of the only song containing a hard-to-find chord, and I could see what Heather is actually playing.
The bold line is what something that I read on Heather's fingers and I didn't know for sure if it was on purpose or a (nice) mistake, for it's quite strange considering the rest of the song (nice to hear, but strange that she does this at this very only line).

Heather Nova

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.

A flash of who you could have been.
Begin the journey you that started long ago -

And all apologies and all the damage done,
Somehow you never found the key,

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.
