Wow!

How can we have such similar tastes for one album and such different the next?

Well this is a Tough quest so I make it just TOP3

1. I wanna be your light
2. You left me a song
3. Aquamarine

I think there isn't any particularly weak song on this album...Listening to "Fool for you", makes me want to change the Top 3 again

1. Everytime.
2. Storm.

(Photograph would have been here.)

3. Fool for you.
4. Aquamarine
5. One day in June.
6. You left me a song.
7. Drink it in.
8. All I need.
9. I wanna be your light.

And I LOVE all of them. I hate looking at that list, because it looks like I don't like, say, "River of life" and I love that song.

I just love the whole album.

Very similar to my thoughts on the album. Well, I don't "love" River of Life, but I like listening to the whole album, especially as a unit. Easily the best put-together album of Heather's... the most cohesive. The songs arent as good as the ones on Oyster, by and large, but it is a wonderful experience listening to it.

I wish that Photograph could count, as that's a fantastic song. Nevertheless, I think Letís Not Talk About Love wouldíve been higher had the duet version just been her, and *only* her singing in French. Otherwise, my rating is going for the English version.

And I agree...there aren't any songs I hate on here. It's a (somewhat) perfect whole. ^^

Storm *****
Everytime *****

Drink It In ****Ĺ

Aquamarine ****
I Wanna Be Your Light ****

One Day In June ***Ĺ
Fool For You ***Ĺ

All I Need ***
River Of Life ***
You Left Me A Song ***

Let's Not Talk About Love **Ĺ


I did this without looking at my old order and weirdly, my current order matches my old order better than what I thought my old order was matches my older order. Down to the very same "Let's Not Talk Above Love" being right on the line. I did not remember that at all! I actually thought it had been River of Life which i liked more than I expected. I also didn't remember Fool For You was my favorite of all the songs that weren't right at the top.

That's really uncanny. I have switched Everytime and Storm but those two have switched places before for me. Great songs.

Funny enough, the four shortest song songs on the album are the top four.

I do love quiet and sad songs. So Storm, The Jasmine Flower, and The Way It Feels are three of my favorite albums. Half the songs are good, half the songs are great, what's not to love?

Everytime

Storm
One Day In June
Aquamarine

Fool For You

(almost equality)
Let's Not Talk About Love
All I Need
You Left Me A Song
River Of Life
Drink It In

------------

I Wanna Be Your Light

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.

Storm is funny. I expected to put Everytime ahead by just a little and for both to be four and a half like Out In New Mexico.

But I can't find anything wrong with Storm. It's an extremely tight, vivid extended metaphor with perfect singing and guitar. Beautiful folk or folk/rock song. You could say, I guess, the metaphor isn't original enough but the preparation for the tropical storm (I assume) is just so vivid and real. I guess you could say maybe she hits the metaphor over the head too much but the point of the song is how you're living through something that feels like a metaphor and you think about it and feel it - how she thinks about "things that got lost" when making her storm preparations with the shutters and the anchors.

I don't know that it doesn't get a little tired with repetition the way Island and Sugar never do. But I can't really separate it from them either.

It also is the one and only second encore I've ever gotten at a show - in Portland after the first encore, Heather came back to play one final song without Arnulf this time and it was Storm. Portland was her favorite city of the tour and it was a beautiful theater and the crowd was good and it was just magical. Only time she played Storm on the entire tour.

Everytime is a little more interesting musically with that guitar and maybe her singing though I find her singing amazing on both. It's very short and simple. Maybe I could say "yours the thorny crown" doesn't fit in with the rest of it or do a whole lot as a Jesus reference but, eh, the song is still perfect for me.

Also the whistling. That beautiful melody which so perfectly fits the song. The way she captures these vivid images - riding in a car at night has never been done better? I don't quite know what haunts me about the last verse but it just sticks with me. "Where the sea grass grows dark among the stones, you have thrown the line, saved me everytime." Gorgeous.

I cannot find anything not to like about Drink It In either. Maybe a touch less vivid but really, really moving and so quiet and contemplative which fits it perfectly. Love the way it builds. Oddly reminds me a whole lot of Everything Changes.

Really? Itís one of my favourite verses of a Heather song!

Actually, I love the whole album. Hard to put the songs in order.

But Everytime is so simple and pure and genius for that (well, there are such songs, also e.g. Tracy Chapmanís Baby can I hold you). So, one of my all-time favourites by her, for sure.
Storm as well. I love the mood it evokes in me. And I can say the same for Aquamarine (although itís a different Ė easygoing Ė mood).
Fool for you (which has unfortunately been played almost too often on tour) is still touching for me as well.
I wanna be your light was my favourite when the album came out, but like FFY played too often live through the last years for my taste, but it is still a great song to me.
And I also like Letís not talk about love very much.
The remaining songs are quite equal for me, I like them only a touch less than the others, but Iím also fond of them.

Just in case there was a language barrier issue, I meant haunting in a good way. A very good way. The last verse of Everytime is amazing. I remember doing research on sea grass and where it grows when the album came out. That would be one of the things I'd want to note if I ever went to Bermuda.

Iíve understood it in a positive way! I was surprised that someone else seems to like this verse very much.
