ΤΟ REVIEW ΤΟΥ ΝΕΟΥ ΔΙΣΚΟΥ



Ακούσαμε ξανά ακούσαμε και αναλύουμε τα τραγούδια του 11ου δίσκου των Red Hot Chili Peppers 1.THE GETAWAY(7/10)
Πρώτο τραγούδι The Getaway εδώ έχουμε το αγαπημένο τραγούδι του Anthony Kiedis , είναι πεντακάθαρη εδώ η επιρροή του Danger Mouse και φαίνεται πλέον πως ο Ρικ Ρούμπιν δεν είναι μαζί τους. Εδώ οι Red Hot Chili Peppers πατάνε σε νέα μονοπάτια ξεκάθαρα με ηλεκτρονική μουσική που θυμίζει τις τελευταίες σόλο δουλειές του Φρουσιάντε! Αρμονικά φωνητικά απο Κίεντις και βοηθητικά απο την Anna Waronker (και οχι απο Τζος Κλινγκοφερ όπως αρχικά νομίζαμε!). Ομώνυμο τραγούδι που  συμβολίζει που θα κινηθεί και ο δίσκος.
special moment: Ιδιαίτερη ηλεκτρονική εισαγωγή

lyrics
That’s right you’re right
We will do our thing tonight alright
Take me through the future
It’s time you’re fine
Just another color coded crime
Incision and a suture
You told my friend
We would get it on no matter when
A supercavitation
Let’s go you show
Me something no one will ever know
A love hallucination

Another lonely superstar
To get away inside your car
Take it much too far
Surrender to the brave inside
A lover that another tried
Take it, too my ride

You don’t have to keep it if it’s mine
(Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car)
Another place maybe another time
(Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried)

Complete repeat
Sitting in your car and on your street
Lost in California
Let’s steal this wheel
Take a spin to find out how we feel
Just around the corner
Slow down for sound
Turn it up and no we can’t be found
The body that we transcend
Asleep, you weep
Find out that the trick is never cheap
A melancholy girlfriend

Another lonely superstar
To get away inside your car
Take it much too far
Surrender to the brave inside
A lover that another tried
Take it, too my ride

You don’t have to keep it if it’s mine
(Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car)
Another place maybe another time
(Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried)

That’s right you’re right
We will do our thing tonight, alright
Drive the constellation
It’s time you’re fine
Just another color coded crime
The song is fascination

Another lonely superstar
To get away inside your car
Take it much too far
Surrender to the brave inside
The lover that another tried
Take it, too my ride

A May December might not be so smart
(Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car)
Arrivals that we wish would not depart
(Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried)

Don’t be late cause you’re my savior
Make it great whatever stays
Golden gate my rearranger
Hold my name inside your rays

2.DARK NECESSITIES(9/10)
 Πρώτο δείγμα άκρως θετικό με Dark Necessities να είναι ενα τραγούδι κλασικό για την μπάντα ,  βέβαια περίμενα κάτι πιο δυνατό για πρώτο single του δίσκου. Αξίζει να αναφερθεί εδώ πως εταιρία και παραγωγός διαφώνησαν για το ποιο τραγούδι θα ήταν το πρώτο single του νέου δίσκου, η εταιρία ήθελε το Go Robot, o Danger Mouse ήθελε Dark Necessities όπως και τελικά έγινε. Το Dark Necessities είναι ενα μελωδικό τραγούδι με δυνατή μπασογραμμή που θυμίζει την ακολουθία στο μπάσο του Can't Stop με όμορφα vocals , πιάνο και πάλι (όπως και στο I'm With You) και κιθάρα μόνο στα απαραίτητα. Μιλάει για τις σκοτεινές ανάγκες των ανθρώπων και περιγράφει πως δεν μπορείς να καταλάβεις το τρόπο σκέψης της σκοτεινής πλευράς που βγάζει ο κάθε χαρακτήρας. Πανέμορφο βίντεο κλίπ απο την Olivia Wilde.
special moment: Δίνει τη δυνατότητα για δυνατό τζαμάρισμα στο τέλος


lyrics
Coming on to the light of day we got
Many moons that are deep at play so I
Keep an eye on the shadow smile
To see what it has to say
You and I both know
Everything must go away
What do you say

Spinning Knot that is on my heart is like a
Bit of light in a touch of dark you got
Sneak attack from the zodiac
But I see your fire spark
Eat the breeze and go
Blow by blow and go away
What do you say
Yeah

You don't know my mind
You don't know my kind
Dark necessities are part of my design and
Tell the world that I'm
Falling from the sky
Dark necessities are part of my design

Stumble down to the parking lot you got
No time for the after thought they're like
Ice Cream for an Astronaut
Well that's me looking for we
Turn the corner and
Find the world at your command
Playing the hand
Yeah

You don't know my mind
You don't know my kind
Dark necessities are part of my design

Tell the world that I'm
Falling from the sky
Dark necessities are part of my design

Do you want this love of mine
Darkness helps us all to shine
Do you want it, do you want it now

Do you want it all the time
But darkness helps us all to shine
Do you want it, do you want it now

Pick you up like a paper back with the
Track record of a maniac so I
Move it in and we unpack
It's the same as yesterday
Any way we roll
Everything must go away, what do you say
Yeah

You don't know my mind
You don't know my kind
Dark necessities are part of my design

Tell the world that I'm
Falling from the sky and
Dark necessities are part of my design

3.WE TURN RED  (6.5/10)
Tο We Turn Red. ξεκινά με δυνατά τύμπανα απο Τσαντ Σμιθ που μας είχε λείψει στα 2 προηγούμενα τραγούδια , συνεχίζει απο μυστήρια επεξεργασία στα φωνητικά απο Κίεντις ακολουθώντας όμως την γνώριμη ταχύγλωσση συρραφή λέξεων όπως τον ξέρουμε τόσα χρόνια. Πηγαίνει έπειτα σε ενα αρμονικό ρεφρέν ξαναγυρίζει σε περίεργα φωνητικά , ξανα πηγαίνει σε αρμονικά μπαλαντοειδή φωνητικά και κλείνει πάλι με το τρόπο που ξεκίνησε κάνοντας σε να νομίζεις οτι εχει μπεί στο repeat τo τραγούδι και ξανά ξεκίνησε μόνο του!
special moment: Ο Chad Smith 


lyrics
We got large and we got small
We got a swimming pool and a cannon ball
We turn red and we turn green
It’s the craziest thing I’ve ever seen

Lost my mind ’cause I’m on the plastic
Who knew it’s so damn drastic
Show me what it is you believe in
Slowly she sinks all her teeth in
Do you want to go fishing in New Orleans?
Do you want to get up early in the morning?
Take me to the river where we do the little storming
Hallelujah, I feel it warming

Sitting here I count the moons
The orders we obeyed
Every night ’fore we go to bed
I watch while the others pray

Send it off through Delaware just
Make it fair for the legionnaires
Paint a simple portrait of my kind
Permission to the heartless bombs
Gold Plated Hate and the waitress moms
Serving up the stories of my mind

Mexico, you are my neighbor
Home of the let’s be braver
Give me all your sick and your tired
Races that we admire
Do you want to go dancing in Chicago?
Trinidad’s got it bad for Tobago
Take me to the lake where we do the Avocado
Hallelujah, a desparado

Sitting here I count the moons
The orders we obeyed
Every night ’fore we go to bed
I watch while the others pray

Send it off through Delaware just
Make it fair for the legionnaires
Paint a simple portrait of my kind
Permission to the heartless bombs
Gold Plated Hate and the waitress moms
Serving up the stories of my mind

Coming down from the deserts where you
Caught a glimpse of the billionaire
Tell me I’m the right one for the ride
Paper signs out on the lawns
Gold minds and the priceless pawns
Does your canyon really open wide?

We got large and we got small
We got a swimming pool and a cannon ball
We turn red and we turn green
It’s the craziest thing I’ve ever seen


4.THE LONGEST WAVE (8/10)
Ενα τραγούδι που σίγουρα σε βάζει στο κλίμα του δίσκου αυτού. Είναι ανάμεσα στα καλύτερα και απο αυτά που θα παιχτούν περισσότερο απο τον δίσκο αυτό, έχει καλοκαιρινή διάθεση και έχει ρεφρέν που σε αναγκάζει να το βάζεις συνέχεια στο repeat. Οι στίχοι πρέπει να έχουν να κάνουν με την πρόσφατη σχέση του Κίεντις.
special moment: το διπλό-τυπο  ρεφρέν
lyrics
Throw me all around
Like a boomerang sky
Whatever you do
Don't tell me why
Poppies grow tall
Then say bye bye
The wave is here

A seamless little team
And then we tanked
I guess we're not so sacrosanct
The tip of my tongue
But then we blanked
The wave is here
Waiting on the wind
To tell my side

Ready set jet
But she never gets far
Listen to your skin
From the seat of my car
Two centipedes stuck
In one glass jar
The longest wave
Waiting on the wind
To tell my side

Whatcha want
Whatcha need
Do you love

Maybe I'm the right one
Maybe I'm the wrong
Just another play, the pirate, and the papillon
Time to call it a day

Maybe you're my last love
Maybe you're my first
Just another way to play inside the universe
Now I know why we came

Sterile as the barrel
Of an old 12 gauge
Under my skin
And half my age
Hotter than the wax
On a saxifrage
The longest wave
Waiting on the wind
To turn my page

Steady your sails
For the butterfly flap
Whatever you do
Don't close that gap
I'm dreaming of a woman
But she's just my nap
Your ship is in
Waiting on the tide so I can swim

Whatcha want
Whatcha need
Do you love

Maybe I'm the right one
Maybe I'm the wrong
Just another play, the pirate, and the papillon
Time to call it a day

Maybe you're my last love
Maybe you're my first
Just another way to play inside the universe
Now I know why we came

Now I know why we came
Now I know
5.GOODBYE ANGELS(7.5/10)
ayo ayo ayo είναι αυτό που σου έρχεται στο μυαλό κατευθείαν όταν ακούς αυτό το τραγούδι. Είναι ένα τραγούδι ρυθμικό με μεγάλη σχέση ζωντανής και ηλεκτρονικής μουσικής. Οι στίχοι είναι η συνέχεια του προηγούμενου κομματιού και προφανώς μιλάει για την σχέση ή τις σχέσεις του Κίεντις στο παρελθόν και με τα προβλήματα που δημιουργούνται απο τη διαφορά ηλικίας.
special moment :το κλείσμο του κομματιού με σόλο μπάσου κιθάρας
lyrics
Suicide a month before I met you
Deep regrets, I never could forget you
Somehow you made your way to my decade
Ayo ayo ayo ayo my girl

In the sun, I see you with your guard down
Number one, you're moving to a hard town
Do not dismiss the promise that you made me
Ayo ayo ayo ayo, my time

Overkill you took another red pill
On the sheet is everything that you spilled
We are the ones you want to know right now
Ayo ayo ayo ayo, black light

Come again to murder your report card
Just a friend to kiss you in the court yard
You are the one I want to be stuck with
Ayo ayo ayo ayo big fight

Favor some
Way too young
Slave to none
Way too young

Say goodbye my love
I can see it in your soul
Say goodbye my love
Thought that I could make you whole
Let your lover sail
Death was made to fail

Sticky fingers find the way to take her
Crumple up another piece of paper
I know your days are numbered when it comes to
Ayo ayo ayo ayo this life

Slip away into the solar system
Straighter rays, you find a way to twist them
Some like it dark and now I know where to
Ayo ayo ayo ayo find you

Serpentine, I think she was an Aussie
Bloody hell, a common kamikaze
Give up the ghost before you go under
Ayo ayo aye ayo wonder

Kicking hard and looking for a rescue
Watch me starve was never to impress you
I would have killed the part of me to have you
Ayo ayo ayo ayo story

Say goodbye my love
I can see it in your soul
Say goodbye my love
Thought that I could make you whole
Let your lover sail
Death was made to fail

Babe I know love is a funny thing
Born to die in the eternal spring

Your flickering is more than just a small flame
Welcome to the party, it's a ball game
Pick up the stick it's time to get hit with
Ayo ayo ayo ayo my bat

Suicide is never going to save you
When I cried, it was because I came too
You are the one I want to know right now
Ayo ayo ayo ayo kiss this

6.SICK LOVE (9/10)
Απο τα αγαπημένα του δίσκου πολύ όμορφο τραγούδι, μελωδικό με όμορφα φωνητικά ,άψογο Kiedis και τραγούδι που θα κάνει αίσθηση.Μιλάει το κομμάτι για την Καλιφόρνια και για την καθημερινότητα των κατοίκων της, αναφέροντας χαρακτηριστικά στο ρεφρέν Sick love is my modern cliche . Μουσική καθαρή επιρροή απο David Bowie και δεκαετία 90.
special moment: Elton John στο πιάνο
lyrics
Say goodbye to Oz and everything you own
California dreamin' is a Pettibon
LA's screaming you're my home
Vanity is blasted but it's rarely fair
I could smell the Prozac in your pretty hair
Got a lot of friends, but is anyone there
I don't know but it's been said
Your heart is stronger than your head
And this location is my home
Stick n move you're living in a quick world
Got a heavy laugh for such a tiny girl
Born into it that's for sure
Rivers get connected so much stronger than expected well
Sick love comes to wash us away
Prisons of perspective
How your vision gets corrected and
Sick love is my modern cliche
People talk and tell you what you want to hear
Do you really need another souvenir
Super heroes tend to disappear
Fame is just a trick you see an empty glass
Leave you feeling thirsty and so very fast
Chase your tail my baby it'll be your last
I don't know but it's been said
Your heart is stronger than your head
And this location is my home
Rivers get connected so much stronger than expected well
Sick love comes to wash us away
Prisons of perspective
How your vision gets corrected and
Sick love is my modern cliche
Rivers get connected so much stronger than expected well
Sick love comes to wash us away
Prisons of perspective
How your vision gets corrected and
Sick love is my modern cliche
Openly defective is the lover you elected and
A portrait she was bound to portray


7.GO ROBOT (8.5/10)
Εδω έχουμε το τραγούδι που άρεσε στη warner περισσότερο και ήθελε να γίνει αυτό το πρώτο single. Είναι πολύ ωραίο τραγούδι με μουσική βγαλμένη απο άλλη δεκαετία με την ηλεκτρονική μίξη στα πλήκτρα να θυμίζει αυτά των ροκ συγκροτημάτων των προηγούμενων δεκαετιών , κάτι σαν soundrack σε βιντεοταινία δεκαετίας 80! Ωραίο ρεφρέν ,ωραίο μπάσο ,ρυθμικό ξεχωρίζει και αυτό φυσικά σε αυτό το δίσκο .
 
special moment: τα απο άλλη εποχή ηλεκτρονικά πλήκτρα προσδίδουν disco στιγμές!


lyrics

I called the teacher cause I wanted to confess it now

Can I make the time for me to come and get it blessed somehow

She spoke to me in such a simple and decisive tone

Her sweet admission left me feeling in position from

I don't take these things so personal
Anymore, anymore
I don't think it's irreversible
Anymore

Somebody hooted and they hollered can I buy a vowel
Don't let her catch you in the act of throwing in the towel
And when it's not as it appears to be, the flagrant foul
Can I put my fingers in your mouth before you start to growl

I don't think that it's so terrible
Anymore, anymore
I don't think that it's unbearable
Anymore

Tell me now, I know that it just won't stop
You will find your flow when you go robot
I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin

Sometimes I feel like I'm a sentimental trooper
She cried so hard, you know she looked like Alice Cooper

I don't think that it's so personal
Anymore, anymore
I don't think it's irreversible
Anymore

Tell me know, I know that it just won't stop
You will find your flow when you go robot

I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin

I'm kissing high and low
Our bodies like two dominoes
Can I come and get you when I hit you in your party clothes
Let's turn this cosplay holiday, what we obey
And now we're welcoming each other to this cabaret

I don't think that it's so terrible
Anymore, anymore
I don't think that it's unbearable
Anymore

Tell me now, I know that it just won't stop
You will find your flow when you go robot
I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin

8.FEESTING ON THE FLOWERS (7/10)
Γλέντι στα Λουλούδια σαν τίτλος μας δίνει ενα ανοιξιάτικο καλοκαιρινό τόνο και συνεχίζει σε ίδιο μπασταρδεμένο r'n'b ρυθμό. Στίχοι λίγο μπερδεμένοι για προσωπικά βιώματα και σλόγκαν αφήνουμε το παρελθόν και κοιτάμε μπροστά.
special moment:Είναι στο ίδιο μήκος κύμματος με το Even You Brutus? απο I'm With You
lyrics
I was walking through the streets I could not hear my best friend call
He was feeling incomplete about to take his final fall
Last thing I remember there were tears of blood and just not mine
Any other day and I would save you from this cold decline

Everything they said about everything
Was a coming undone it's a life supreme
I do and I don't, well I do and I don't, Oh yeah

Feasting on the flowers so fast and young
It's a light so bright that I bite my tongue
I do and I don't, well I do and I don't, Oh yeah
The next dimension, show me in

We were moving in the world, expanding your realities
A force of nature on the verge, commanding abnormalities
Last thing I remember there was ringing in my selfish ears
Twenty-Six a number much too small for someone's golden years

Everything they said about everything
Was a coming undone it's a life supreme
I do and I don't, well I do and I don't, Oh yeah

Feasting on the flowers so fast and young
It's a light so bright that I bit my tongue
I do and I don't, well I do and I don't, Oh yeah
The next dimension, show me in

You get a little bit more this time when
You give a little bit for your brother's kind
Like she always said, "Oh, Don't look back, just look ahead"

You sign a little bit stronger when you
Remember the song of your old best friend
Like she always said, "Oh, Don't look back, just look ahead"

Everything they said about everything
Was a coming undone it's a life supreme
I do and I don't, well I do and I don't, Oh yeah

Feasting on the flowers so fast and young
It's a light so bright that I bite my tongue
I do and I don't, well I do and I don't, Oh yeah
The next dimension, show me in


9.DETROIT(8/10)
Φτάσαμε στο 9o κομμάτι για να συστηθούν οι Ροκερς Red Hot Chili Peppers . Ενα mid-τεμπο rock κομμάτι με επιρροές απο τη δεκαετία του 90 και συνδυασμό μουσικής που θυμίζει soundgarden και παραμορφωμένη φωνή απο Κίεντις. Αναφορά στη πόλη του Τσάντ Σμίθ και με δικές του ιστορίες φορεμένες σε στίχους του Κίεντις.
special moment: η κιθάρα του Josh (επιτέλους)
lyrics
Find me in the suburbs and
The shadow of decay
Rolling rings of rubber and
The band begins to play

Am I on the right side of the left side of your brain
Can you see the rising of old yesterday's remains
Funkadelic said it best I think you know the rest
Time don't stand a chance against this motor madness

Don't you worry baby I'm like
Detroit, I'm crazy
Don't you worry baby I'm like
Detroit, I'm crazy I'm like
Detroit, I'm crazy
Don't you worry baby I'm like

The Stooges and J Dilla, yeah
They tore this town apart
Put me back together, well
I guess that's quite an art

Henry won the war you see
But not with pen or sword
He did it with the little thing I think it's called a Ford

Funkadelic said it best I think you know the rest
Time don't stand a chance against this motor madness

Don't you worry baby I'm like
Detroit, I'm crazy
Don't you worry baby I'm like
Detroit, I'm crazy I'm like
Detroit, I'm crazy
Don't you worry baby I'm like
Detroit, I'm crazy I'm like
Detroit, I'm crazy

Everything's so hazy I'm like
Detroit, I'm crazy I'm like
Detroit, I'm crazy
Everything's so hazy


10.THIS TICONDEROGA(8.5/10)
Απο τα πιο δυνατά τραγούδια του δίσκου, ανεβοκατέβασμα ρυθμού και συνδυασμός κιθάρας φωνητικών σε high level. Θα γίνει συναυλιακό αγαπημένο τραγούδι. Οι στίχοι μιλούν ξανά για παλιές ιστορίες οχι μόνο αγάπης αλλα γενικότερα σαν να ξεφυλλιζεις ενα ροκ λεύκωμα και διαβάζεις πράγματα που συμβαίνουν μόνο σε ροκ καταστάσεις.
special moment: ο στίχος Illusionary is so damn scary I call my best friend Flea
lyrics
I met a man in a rock and roll band he said won't you come with me
I let him know that I could not go you see I get mine for free

We are all just soldiers in this battlefield of life
One thing that's for certain is my burning appetite

Step inside the emotional ride I could use some company
Illusionary is so damn scary I call my best friend Flea

This Ticonderoga is an element that shines
Connected by the great unknown between us there are lines

Yes I told her that
I'm the older cat
Can I scratch your back all day
I would not have it any other way, well

Means so much to me
Can you see the we
What are we ever gonna do when all I want to be is next to you

I took a girl from the underworld and I held her way too tight
When it's all been said and done she was not up for the fight

We are all just soldiers in this open field of time
Hoping to get with you when you get right with your mind

It's my favorite
So I savor it
I must report that life is short
So of your love I'll take ten quarts well

There's no end to this
Don't pretend to miss
You and you would not repent for sitting on my elephant and

Am I crazy to
Join the lazy zoo
All these human butterflies and
Cactus flowers swollen eyes and

I want the devil's share
Of you I do declare
Again I'm asking can I do
When all these animals want to be just like you

I met a girl with long black hair and she opened up so wide
A daffodil growing in Brazil and I picked her for my bride

We are all just soldiers in this epic loving flight
And no one that I know has ever really done it right

Done it right
Done it right
Done it right
Done it right


11.ENCORE(10/10)

Προσωπικά το αγαπημένο μου κομμάτι. Η τοπ ροκ-μπαλάντα που μας ετοίμαζαν για να κολλήσουμε και με αυτό το δίσκο. Vocals υψηλου επιπέδου και κιθάρα άψογη. Οι στίχοι (βασικά δεν μας απασχολούν οι στίχοι!!!)....μιλούν για νοσταλγία και γίνεται και αναφορά στους Beatles.
special moment:..ENCORE
lyrics
Listen to the Beatles and the sound of laughing Ed McMahon, we got high
Educated by a world so full of self and lost in space, too much pride
Cosmonauts and dirty thoughts are juggling the juggernaut, Soviet Spy
Every now and then when I remember to befriend, the little things in life

Hey you're fine
I wanna listen to the radio
Driving down Calexico highway
And now I know the signs for sure

Hold my hand
I want to share it all with Mary
Results are gonna vary now

Later on I'll read to you the things that I've been needing to say goodbye
Walk away from mom and dad to find the love you never had, tell no lies
Carry on and write a song that says it all and shows it off 'fore you die
Take a little breath before you catch an early death there is so much sky

Hey you're fine
I wanna listen to the radio
Driving down Calexico highway
And now I know the signs for sure

Hold my hand
I want to share it all with Mary
Results are gonna vary now

Skinny brains and little stains upon your
Face teenage remains tell me more
Lifted in the fifties when you really rather drifted through time, let's soar

Hey you're fine
I wanna listen to the radio
Driving down Calexico highway
And now I know the signs, for sure

Hold my hand
I want to share it all with Mary

Results are gonna vary now

12.THE HUNTER(7/10)
Εδω έχουμε ενα τραγούδι μπαλάντα απαγγελία απο τον Κίεντις, ειναι και αυτό βιογραφικό και δίνει μια γεύση πως ζούσαν οι ροκ μπάντες παλαιότερα και πιο συγκεκριμένα ο Κίεντις με τους Red Hot Chili Peppers.
special moment:αρμονικός συνδυασμός κιθάρας πιάνου.
lyrics
Woke up this morning like I always do
I still like to think that I'm new
Time just gets its way
Strawberries left to decay

Can't find my pants or my bank account
Don't you slip away
Voices that start to betray

Even though you raised me I will never be your father
King of each and every Sunset Marquis
Even though you're crazy you will never be a bother
You're my Old Man In the Sea

I still like to laugh when I make a joke
I still like to think that there's hope
Time just has its say
Strawberries left to decay

Struck by the sight of an empty hall
Don't you fade away
Voices that start to betray

Even though you raised me I will never be your father
King of each and every Sunset Marquis
Even though you're crazy you will never be a bother
You're my Old Man In the Sea

The hunter gets hunted
We all get confronted
Don't just slip away
Voices that start to betray

Even though you raised me I will never be your father
King of each and every Sunset Marquis
Even though you're crazy you will never be a bother

You're my Old Man In the Sea

13.DREAMS OF A SAMURAI(7.5/10)
Το τραγούδι που κλείνει το δίσκο είναι αυτό που έπρεπε καθώς δίνει το στίγμα του μουσικού δρόμου που ακολουθεί όλος ο δίσκος απο την αρχή μέχρι το τέλος. Πιάνο , φωνητικά , μελαγχολία , αρμονία , άψογο ρεφρέν είναι απο τα στοιχεία αυτου του τραγουδιού το οποίο θα παιχτεί αρκετές φορές στα live καθώς έχει μεγάλα περιθώρια τζαμαρίσματος. Οι στίχοι και εδώ ακολουθούν το ίδιο μοτίβο με αναφορές στην ηλικία και παλιές αγάπες.
special moment: τα φωνητικά της  Beverley Chitwood στην αρχή του κομματιού.
lyrics
Standing naked in your kitchen
Feeling free that I could be alive
Clearly I'm a contradiction
Too young to be my wife

A peaceful storm is never hectic
Her mellow voice that I could be within
The uniform is anorexic
A jealous choice won't win

A metamorphosis samurai
Y'got a little lord fish and I don't know why I got a
Metamorphosis samurai

Paint your face cause I'm a black foot
I thought I counted up the fireflies
Close enough to get a good look
Time to mobilize

A metamorphosis samurai
Y'got a little lord fish and I don't know why I got a
Metamorphosis samurai

I'm a lonely lad
I've lost myself out on the range
I don't remember much
So don't ask me I've gone insane

Taking acid in a graveyard
Stealing food to keep the night alive
Every day I try to play hard
Even with my lies

The day they found you on a tour bus
The news was barren as a desert bone
The tabloids made a kind of small fuss
A couple pictures shown

I'm a lonely lad
I've lost myself out on the range
I don't remember much
So don't ask me I've gone insane

Slowly turning into driftwood
No one ever wants to die alone
Thinking that a pretty gift could
Make you less unknown

Dirty sneakers on the pavement
The brilliant features of a common man
See the miracle of your life
No one ever can

I'm a lonely lad
I've lost myself out on the range
I don't remember much
So don't ask me I've gone insane

See the world go by
The changes that we entertain
I don't recall it all

Remember I have gone insane

Συνολικά λοιπόν ακούσαμε έναν ευχάριστο ήχο πολύ μελωδικό και ήρεμο . Τα περισσότερα τραγούδια κινήθηκαν σε χαμηλό τέμπο με φανερή έλλειψη δυνατών ροκ στιγμών , ακόμα λιγότερες και απο το I'm With You. Βέβαια μας είχαν ενημερώσει οτι θα ακούσουμε εναν χορευτικό δίσκο με την ηλεκτρονική μουσική να επηρεάζει σε μεγάλο βαθμό τα γνωστά ακούσματα που μας είχαν συνηθίσει τόσα χρόνια. Ο δίσκος έδειξε πως παρ'οτι 'έχουν 30 χρόνια ιστορία δεν φοβήθηκαν να ακουμπήσουν και σε άλλα μονοπάτια και αποδείχθηκε εκ των υστέρων οτι καλά έκαναν. Η παραγωγή του δίσκου απο τον Danger Mouse ήταν καλή βάζοντας εκεί που χρειάστηκε ηλεκτρονικές πινελιές χωρίς να τους αλλάζει τελείως τα στάνταρ τους, υπήρξε δηλαδή ενα όμορφο πάντρεμα των ήχων. Γενικότερα σου βγάζει μια μονοτονία σε κάποια σημεία ο δίσκος όμως για τους φάνς τα τραγούδια θα μείνουν χαραγμένα στο μυαλό για πολλά χρόνια. Κλείνοντας να επισημάνουμε οτι δεν λειτουργεί πάντα κάποιο μουσικό πείραμα και έχουμε δει αρκετές αποτυχίες σε μπάντες στο παρελθόν, εδω όμως έχουμε κάτι όμορφο που μόνο αποτυχία δεν μπορεί να ονομαστεί.
