if you don't put Oyster very high, ...

Don't get me wrong. I said I didn't put it as high as some others do. For me it is not 10 miles above all the rest of her work.
It is obviously one of my favorite album (definitely the one I will choose if I had to take one on a desert island) - and yes, it IS the strongest album she released, no doubt about that.
I was just pointing out there's no point to wait the new Oyster. Oyster has a particular place in Heather's career and in the heart of many of the ones who follow her since the 90's and for the different reasons I mentioned.

And obviously it doesn't prevent anyone to dislike or being disappointed with new songs.

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.


I meant in general, and because most of people discovered Heather with Oyster/Siren. So that 'first kiss' part is in the equation for lot of people, obviously not all. And I'm not saying this is the only element.
Maybe I'm biased because I don't put Oyster as high as many others here, there are songs I don't like on this album, some that I like a lot but if you look objectively aren't exceptional in Heather's work. Some are very powerful because of the theme but would we still be amazed if Heather would have written 3+ songs per album till now about her abuse ?
Some are exceptional because what I said before : The energy of youth, some innocence, the background of her young life.

TWIF is my least favorite album, with the only 'powerful' song being the 'Archeologist' (and it is 'powerful' mainly because of one sentence to me) so I don't really adhere to the legend that Heather has to be unhappy to write good songs.

It's definitely not Oyster II


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.

What are your favourite ones so far ?


- Rewild me : For the lyrics obviously, and the structure of the song (a la I miss my sky) and finally a proper guitar solo in Heather's song
- All the rivers : For the energy of the song and the lead guitar and Heather's voice
- Some things just come undone : The real rock song of the album, obviously touched by the theme, and because the song stands out from the rest of the album
- After all this time : For the lyrics and the chorus that is very powerful. I liked it acoustic as well but it takes another dimension on the cd.

I like the other ones as well, except the first and last one.
Overall, it's really an excellent album, at par (or close to) 300 days for me (which is one of my favorite)

I personaly like it and im happy she put it on the album (I don't know Rose Gold).

'Vincent' is the one that sounds more private and should have been kept private as it is (although i dont dislike it)

Thanks! Is it possible to make scans of the album? Especially of the parts that could differ from the European version? For example the backside with the label information? And maybe of the CD?


Sure, i will try to do that

Ordered mine on Amazon here in US and yes, it's a cardboard sleeve. Received it yesterday. First impression is rather good, much more melodic and interesting than The Way It Feels.

Unfortunatelly, we cannot watch the Berlin show on Arte website from the US

I had a lovely evening with Heather
It was a beautiful venue, although it was half full (considering the number of europeans living in the Bay Area, you could have hoped for more). The audience was nice but always with this kind of 'polite' feeling when you are in a seated venue. Heather had a standing ovation for the encore and at the end though, and suddenly the crowd felt warmer. Only negative point was the sound wasn't great, maybe it was better after a while - or i got used to it, it didn't spoil the show though.

Set list for me was good with mixed feelings for me. I don't like Treehouse on the album and didn't like it either as an opening song. Otherwise she did 3 of my favorites from the new album (Girl on the mountain, Moon River Days and Archeologist) and I loved them.
Was surprised there was so many from Oyster/Siren, I really enjoyed Winterblue and Island that I didn't listen for a while (but why agaaaiiiin Paper Cup...). Surprised H&S was in slow mode. Loved that she played I Miss My Sky. Fool for you was the highlight for me, so many personal feelings on that song, she got me (yeah she really got me ) - funny how you know she's going to play this one when she sit on the piano Little disappointed they was only one song from previous album (and none from Jasmine) and not the best one really (Until the race is run) I missed Motherland... but you can't play everything i know.
Arnulf was at his best, he really impressed me (esp on the guitar) and i didnt have such memories of his performance (maybe i just dont remember). Didn't really like the too basic rythm box on upbeat songs, she's done much better on previous tour with beat box, anyway it was ok most of the time.
My wife also liked the concert although she doesn't know much of the songs (although they regularly play in the car - she thought we were going to see Anna Ternheim "yeah...one of your girls")

Unfortunately I wasn't able to wait Heather to come and sign, hopefully next time she comes (if ever) or i come to her, it will be less hectic times.

I will be in Berkeley Didn't see Heather since 2010 (when I had to fly from India to Paris ) so yeah I'm quite exited (didn't read anything about the concerts so far to keep the surprise). I'm not a big fan of the new album (although it is growing in me since I listen to it a lot during my commute to work) but still now that the concert is next week, I really can't wait to be there (yes I HAD to use this smiley for my first message on HNN for ages )
Anyone else is going ? Sorry you cannot go Robin but I see you're can at least go to other ones so that's great.

"i lost a baby" couldn't be an image ? From the day I heard the song in Paris I asked myself if she was talking of a real baby or not (remember thinking of this in the train the day after the concert)

First I like the CD picture very much (I don't like the other promo pics, though I still like the pastel shades), the best one with South imho. And I like the letters.
However for an album that is supposed to be the rockest ever, the picture give more a peaceful feeling.

About the Pledge thing, I think most of the things are reasonnably priced and I'm happy to see that already 44% of fundraising has been reached. I agree with the comments it would be good to see the pictures of the items though, if I can blindly buy a 15 euros CD, it's not the same for the rest. (I'm tempted by the handwritten lyrics btw, but I would have to choose the song... and I'm not very attached to things, but otoh, this is also to support Heather)

I'm not sure I understand the frustration around the 250 euros songs since I have no doubt that :
- the songs will emerge on the internet sooner or later (and yes I can wait one or two years...)
- if they were amazing songs, Heather would have released them already
I also think the 250 euros price is not the best commercial choice (esp. when you cannot hear at least a sample) but there's nothing to get angry about, seriously.

However, I'm more aligned with the 10% charity comments. It turns to be a general kind of redemption nowdays to collect money for anything and say 'oh you know some % will go to a charity'. If Heather have a cause that she wants to sustain, I have no problem she advertise it to her fans, and her fans are free to support it or not (and if they don't that doesn't mean they don't support other causes

Isn't Cafe de la danse in Paris a standing venue ? Maybe that's why there's no real row booking. If ever I can arrange a trip to Paris, I may take a VIP ticket, it would be my unique concert in 4 years so... I met Heather after concerts quite few times (special memories in Lyon after concert cancellation when she spent 20 minutes with us taking pics and chat, and in Lausanne when she signed my guitar) and I think the 'organized' meet and greet could be disappointing, certainly depends how many people are there. I understand the concern about '2 classes fans' but (since we all agree artists have to make more money of their concerts) would it be better to raise the average price of the ticket ? I may sound more equitable but could also disqualify people who cannot afford to buy a ticket at 40 euros.
