I like the way the singer belts out the chorus.

I've been listening to this song for 30+ years and the slide guitar never fails to move me. Can listen to this a million times and never get tired of it.

What a great interpretation of the song, definitely the jazz album of the year. Zorn can take a seat.

I first heard of Godspeed You ! Black Emperor in the days of Pedestrian´s album club but it´s taken me until recently to follow up on her recommendation.
Just been listening to Dead Flag Blues and Providence. It´s the perfect music to hear while you are working: subtle, sinister and subversive:-




My humble verdict on some recent clips: I´ve put them in a spoiler because they all seem to be negative and I wouldn´t like my personal opinion to detract someone else´s enjoyment.

Spoiler for nothing but picky criticisms:
Next time I´m suffering from caffeine-induced jitters I might come back and play Frownland´s again.
Sorry, Neff Anselmo , but I´ve never liked that kind of noisy, angry music (with the exception of Beefheart, of course).
Chula´s was also a bit rowdy for my delicate tastes, but I liked how it seemed to slide from one tempo/style to another.
Glad you enjoy the slide guitar, ribbons, but for me it wasn´t strong enough to dispell the sense of ennui that Harrison´s lyrics induces.
Yours was fun Briks, though I liked the clear, interesting lyrics of the verses more than the chorus that you mentioned.

Praxis. Thanks to the person who brought them up yesterday. I'd forgotten how killer this album is.
