At first listen, I really didn't like it. But as this has been they way with all OR tunes, that didn't disappoint me very much. Gave it a couple more listenings. And then more. More. More & more. Still some more.
Sadly, still not liking it very much. There's a few songs I love now (Hanging from a hit, Piratess), and honestly, that's OK for me. Although I love other releases completely, it's just natural it can't be that way with every record.
What's different on this one, it's kind of ... well, shrill, piercing, or something. Can't find the right word for it, in german it would be "schrill". It's got so many high tones, or something in that way, that I can't listen to it in my car. OK, the soundsystem in my car isn't very good, but every other OR album sounds great in my car. "Very far" on the other hand doesn't. I have to turn the volume down to listen to it. Did anyone else experience this, too? Or is it just my ears that can't stand something in those songs? I can't name it. But it's there, preventing me from listening to it on full volume, which is the best way to experience music, in my opinion.
