I'm really enjoying the album, although it's not feeling like a "major statement," which I don't think it was intended to be. It's just really nice, interesting, great vibe, experimental and we're spoiled by all the Finn-related music released recently so no complaints from me.
Is it just me, or do many of the songs seem to go by very quickly? Perhaps it's because of the a sense of length and gravitas attached to most of the "Out Of Silence" tracks, as well as the more extended "jam" versions they've played live - but the whole thing really felt like it went by fast. Maybe the few longer songs are just making the 3 minute ones SEEM shorter. Either way, I absolutely applaud and appreciate it when the Finns stretch out and try new things. This'll be a big grower.
I've been reading that the opening track was written by Neil for Liam's wedding and "Listen" may be a Neil solo composition (which he's played live solo before, as well). I downloaded it, so no writing credits, but does anyone know what the songwriting credits ARE for each track on the album?
