I understand why someone may not like Enclosure, but I really love it. Honestly. Shining Desert, Sleep, Fanfare, Cinch, Crowded, Excuses and even Scratch. I love those songs. Yes, they’re different or unconventional…
I knew this would happen xD.
For me it’s hard to argue in English, so I’m gonna try to explain it better.
I’m not saying that I do not appreciate John’s work. He’s a very honest musician with himself and that’s the thing I most respect about him. However, in his last two albums, he has brought several changes that do not make me “feel” the same way.
I could spend days listening to the Empyrean, Curtains, The Will To Death or Shadows Collide with People, but I can’t do the same thing with PBX or Enclosure.
I insist that Enclosure is not a bad album, but it’s not the one I expected from John (in my subjective and selfish point of view).
It’s OK my friend, sorry that I used your comment to bring this up. But I have to admit that I don’t like when people call his music “nonsense” so I tried to explain a little bit of John’s approach for the people who may not know about it, but please don’t take it personally or feel that I’m attacking you because that was not my intention.
Luckly for us who appreciate John’s music, we can enjoy and choose from an interesting variety of musical approaches and styles. So we can leave some records out and listen to what we like the most.
I still find it hard to understand Outsides, but it’s OK. I don’t have to listen to it everyday if I don’t enjoy it haha maybe one day the album will find me and it’d be an epiphany or something ahahaha
Thanks for taking the time to answering and discuss John’s work.
"Song to sing when I’m lonely" just started playing and suddenly I felt so sad… I guess it’s time to go to bed with the illusion that I won’t be awake in a long time…
CAN I GET A HELL YEAH IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING WITH YOUR LIFE AND YOU DON’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP
