    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.

    @XDRory even if Neil only had one listener and that was you, as long as you like the music and it means something to you then it doesn't matter how many other people listen to him.

    Tonight seeing Barbra Streisand at the Oscars singing The Way We Were, make me realize how much I would like to see Neil's rendition of the song and of course: Would love to hear a new TDC album this year! [4]

    Mozzarella10, it must be awful to live in this world unable to grasp the concept of irony <---- Even though the song isn't serious and the narrator is supposed to be an asshole, there are still people who actually think like him. It wasn't written in a vacuum.

    @Mozzerella10 You never realized that "Casanova" is pure irony, right?

    "lyrics like this is basically euphemising, trivialising, even glamourising rape." LOL WUT??

    okay, after several listens to the "casanova" album, and listening to the lyrics for once, i was disappointed. i hate sexism, and i find lots in it. i suppose i should have guessed, by the title. "oh, come on, everybody knows that no means yes" and "i suggested, she protested, i persisted till she said well okay, and I said wahey" and a song about writing "songs of love" for guys who see schoolgirls as "prey" surprised me. although you might say it's just songs, but lyrics like this is basically euphemising, trivialising, even glamourising rape. maybe neil should learn some good consent, after all, this is a patriarchal society where good consent doesn't even cross some guys' minds.

    Fin de Siecle, Casanova and A Short Album About love are pure masterpieces. They are truly part of me. Neil is such a brilliant composer..and obviously a super performer.
