|3. Corner, A|
The 4 songs on this cd al have the strong powerful performance that is John's voice, and song writing skills.
I was hesistant at first in buying this one bexcause it only had 4 tracks, but I think it's one of Frusciante's best@!
Well Recommended!! Pick up this cd...
The album starts out with "Dissolve", a philosophical bender with a catchy guitar riff. Lyrics include "Just because you mean what you say/that's not saying/that you're so far into the clean." There are some guitar heroics in the song, but the most noticeable part of the song was no synthesizers. Yes, Frusciante did not use any synthesizers on the album, and I think it brings a more organic quality to the music, which is a very good thing!
"Goals" has the vibe of old Velvet Underground, the guitar riff is so reminisicient of something from Velver Underground & Nico, its haunting! Frusciante's voice seems extremely melacholy, this is him thinking about his past, his loves, and dreams that he had lost.
"A Corner" is another melacholy song, mainly about how people aren't open to new experiences in life. They are more concerned with not knowing anything than exposing themselves to different things. The solo invloves Frusciante using his voice as an extension to the guitar, so he'll sing notes, than play them in succession afterwards.. Its something he hasn't really done much before, but its very powerful and moving!
The album closes out with "Repeating". The guitar is gripping and won't let go, pulling all of the heart strings you have.Read more ›
