Just had a quick listen to the snippets of Mental Notes and 2nd Thoughts on the ENZ DVD and had the usual reaction of �this stuff is so good, so interesting, textured, layered ...� then was struck by the thought � these albums would have made a lot more sense had they been made by 50, not 20 year olds. There is a lot of implications of looking back on ones life, at by-gone eras, mental breakdowns etc.
What most people would regard as normal for 20 year olds is the sort of 'good times' dance music they ended up making years later.
I just wonder that with the maturity they showed with these albums how interesting it would be if they grouped together and saw what they would create as actual 50 year olds. Edible Flowers is something that comes to mind that is in this vein.
For those who haven�t listened to it for a while � go back and check out Tims vocals � they really are superb. I can see why Phil loved hearing Tim sing his words. Also Phils vocals on Spellbound and other parts to me are the best he has done � wonder why he ever moved up a register in later incarnations. Phil?
What chance for some 3rd Helpings?
