I just stole this album using a computer I took from an old woman's purse.

"Darkness" and "lightness" in music are very much an intuitive thing for me; it's an aura the music gives off, quite simply. Then again, the beauty of music (one of many, that is) is the fact that it's infinitely semantically indeterminate, so what I hear as "dark," you might not, and vice versa.

I'd easily say that Romance is Boring is "darker" than Hold On Now Youngster as well.
Thank you. Much better than what I could up with while drunk at 3am.

I was just curious if the lyrics were "dark," the music was "dark," or both were "dark." Thanks for avoiding the snide comment and for the information.

EDIT: I should add that I'm definitely curious as to how a whole album of "The Sea..." will work, exactly. Or if.

Everything going on during the "a good place to look to the future is when you are sat at the sea" is fucking exquisite. Especially once the backing vocals come in with the oooo's beginning with the "weather here is overcast" line. Good lord. I can't get enough of that god damn song.

For what it's worth, when you write something such as "Like, honestly" as the ending to a "question," it comes off sounding like you're a dick and being condescending. That's what I was going to react to, and now that I've had a bit of time to process it a bit more, I can say what I was going to without the snarkiness. This isn't the first time you've come off that way either, and to be honest, the way in which you interact with people makes me avoid B&C from time to time. Simply put, there's better ways to state your opinions, you know? Clearly, you love music, probably as much as I do (and that's saying a fucking lot, by the way), so I understand the immense passion you have for bands or albums that you like, but like I said, sometimes the way in which you go about expressing those opinions is frustrating.

Anyway, sorry for the rant, and it wasn't meant personally (seeing as I only know you through the internet tubes and all). It was just something that's been on my mind for awhile (which this comment of yours happened to spark), so I had to get it off my chest.

Damn! That was a pretty epic (if polite) smackdown. And Shouter, the way you worded that question did come off as rude.


Anyway, I think This Is A Flag. There Is No Wind may very well have the greatest LC! chorus ever.

IT'S A CRIME IT'S A CRIME IT'S A CRIME IT'S A CRIME!

Oh, sorry. I was just trying to say that I was asking the question for real, though. Like, "I'm asking this honestly--how do you mean that the record is dark?" Sorry for the confusion.

It's all good. Hopefully, there's no hard feelings, since you know a shitload about music, and your posts (though epically long) are usually fantastic. I didn't think that you meant it to be rude, it was just the way it came off. If you would've asked the way you did below, there would be no confusion.

Oneblood, you had me at "fucking a lot".


Let's keep going in that direction.

You're going to have to do better than that to get me going in any direction that resembles "fucking a lot."

It's official: This Is A Flag. There Is No Wind is now my favorite LC! song.

I want to marry it.
