And all at once back doors blow open

MP3 - The Wrens - She Sends Kisses

It's not enough to listen to this one once. Oh, I don't mean it's one of those "you have to let it grow on you!" songs. I found something I liked in this instantly, and ithink a lot of people will. The lyrics are brilliant. The pace is methodical and well calculated. If I was to teach a class on the importance of building emotion properly and emphasizing dynamics in music, this would be the required text. It's a love song that slowly but inevitable derails the way that a lot of angst filled broken hearted folks keep reminding me. I don't like throwing 3 song who could all be interpreted as downers in a row. I was mulling over some peppy tracks to go with what has been a high spirited enjoyabble night/weekend, but man, I just got stuck on this. Everything else takes a back seat.

This is off The Wrens' latest album, The Meadowlands, released in 2003, and if the other 12 tracks are in the same ballpark it's well worth the money.
