1.DRUGSTORE


i always feel the first song is such a pivotal factor in engaging the listener, DUH, so lets see what MJATW served up as a handshake!!

ok, MUTTERING bumbling and im basically imagine a FOREIGN PLACE, FOREIGN TO EVERYONE, ALL OF EARTHS PEOPLE. ITS A NEW PLACE COMPLETELY.

oh, ... oh!!

very nice rattattat is joined up like a SPAGHETTI AND A MEATBALL by voice and guitar. i admit, i have a soft spot for lo fi.

ok 1:22 and ANOTHER guitar joins in and i feel DELIGHTFUL. this is a very CELTIC sort of feel, but the LYRICAL CONTENT IS THE PICKLE IN THE PIE!!!

by that... I mean, the PIE is good, but anyone can havea pie. this DRUGSTORE song is a pickle pie, its a RARE and HONEST FLAVOUR!!

1:35 the CHOIR! persumably the WONDERFULS, join in a velvety harmony. lets take a minute to think about harmony.

a melody is alone, it is just a meandering series of notes... a harmony.. thats a melody with a whole bunch of GREAT FRIENDS looking to bring out the BEST QUALITIES of that MELODY! not trying to ALTER it or make it be something else, but just HIGHLIGHTING the TRUTH AND HONESTY of the original melody.

do you see?

we should aim to be more harmonious with the melody of our everyday friends.... hmmm...

this is a VERY nice song. listen to it again ok? WOW what a way to start an album

RATING - TICKLED BY THE PICKLE IN MY PIE!!! =>>>>>>>>>









2.JAIL

this is.... SERIOUSLY ... FINALLY! I FEEL UNDERSTOOD!! these lyrics.. this song is an EPIC and should be reserved only for the most important events in a nations history.


ok lemme back up


we start. a weak and frail drum pattern , drums and patterns on while a MULTI TEMPO EXPERIENCE happens when the guitar sort of joins in.

this song just really has my digits so instead of ***DETRACTING FROM IT*** im going to ***LET IT SPEAK FOR ITSELF*** and try and transcribe the lyrics so we can just enjoy this together. hold my hand , lets go.


"you got to get that bull out of jail
jails no place for a bull!

yes it it might cost you 400 dollars,
but you got to get him out whatever the cost because

REFRAIN

Jail------- is no place for a bull
yes i know life as a farmer?? is hard to get through
but you cant let that bull take the fall for you
jail------------!!!


you gotta get that bull out of jail
jails no place for a bull

yes i know that he was a jerk
but thats ok hes a bull they do not have conscience

REFRAIN
"

AMAZING vocal harmonied work goes on and two spoons are hit to signify the ending.



RATING - this should be taught to small children. i much prefer it to any national anythem. sing it in the streets, find the hidding meaning or just skim the surface. perfect

(for those fans of this song, there is a reprise of this idea later in the album)






3. THE ESPRESSO IS NOT SUBTLE


a low rumble in the guitar.... like a small earthquake, supports BEAUTIFUL harmonied vocals again, like a beautiful sky soaring over a broken wasteland... beauty in the hideous...

as the guitars layer and the alien sounds go on....

its like...

god...

THUS SPOKE MARY JANE AND THE WONDERFULS

through the twisting swirling paths... a pure message is being revealed to us but we have to listen NOT WITH OUR OPEN EARS, BUT WITH OUR OPEN MINDS

ALWAYS IN LIFE

****OPEN MINDS****


1:30 the previously agreed upon laser sound lazes on.

we listen on, as the rumbling is met with smacks and pinks plucks out of some sort of future guitar. FUTURE-TAR?

IS THIS A NEW AND HONEST MUSIC?


i find this VERY engaging, how could one listen to this and not think "ahhhhhhh finally"

2:40
the FUTURE-TAR plicks out more naturalistic sorts of melodies, folk ish, native to our land, but joined by the pitter patter of an aliens peoples' feet. thousands, thousands of TINY LITTLE FEET GOING ON ABOUT THERE COFFEE FILLED DAYS. DAZE?

THE LASER LAZES, THE DAYS DAZE

THE SONG IS GOOD.

RATING - THE SONG IS GOOD.
