  • Got listening to Casanova twice yesterday and after midway through the second time I released that: 1) Neil sings in a completely different fashion now days as to how does on Cassanova. Ignoring compositional aspects and focusing on tone - sounds almost like a different singer. A lot of the lines are often spoken, there's a lot more attention to pronunciation and the dynamic range is much wider. I'm glad he's still making music but the vocal style is so insanely different. 2) The epic middle in Charge he sings ridiculously low bass part (hey babe. I love when you talk sex to me) - AND the ridiculous high falsetto backing. I always thought it was random background singer - but its definilty him. Must be at least 4 octaves there. Incredible.
  • Reminds me of The Kinks :)
  • Neil, come on now. 5 years. We're thirsting for more.
