That Girl is You Supporters - A Safe Place

it's ok to admit it, the song's groove is unshakeable, it's raw and gritty. don't be afraid...you are welcome here...

I like the idea of it, the groove is alright. It just smells of incompleteness without a chorus or two, or a bridge, or horns. I can't help but be reminded of the half assed half baked ideas on Stand Up, and that's why I resent this song. It's a decent start, I just wish it was given more time to feel finished.

way more raw than anything on Stand Up and the groove is way better than anything on that shit-stain of an album. wait for it...

Stand up (the song) is less complete than you guys think this one is

Yeah but raw isn't always a good thing. It could be raw still even if it was fleshed out with a chorus. Variety. Something!

Oh I also resent that THIS song is on the album instead of a host of other better songs from the past 12-14 years. It may not be directly related to the fine details about the quality of the song exactly, but more that the first time you hear it you go 'really? This instead of (shotgun/sugar will/crazy easy/ or even Bismarck)?'

I want to dislike it.

But I like the music a lot. Dunno why, because it also sounds a little overproduced everywhere. I get what everyone is saying about the vocal take. It sounds like a live improv complete with scratchiness. I listen and generally like live improvs like this. I understand that people don't think that should be on a record, but this isn't a normal album so it's ok to me that normal rules don't apply and I'm not really compartmentalizing what should be an album and what wasn't.

Since it was clear that this album was a collection of things past and present, I have been intentionally trying to expect and listen to it for what it is. The normal "what I expect from a DMB album" doesn't apply here. I don't like everything. I've listened to Come Together once and just not my thing whaaaaaaatsoever.

But I appreciate this safe place.
