|Amarok to me,isn't so much an album it's an experience.Fun,exiting,amazing,shocking.... so many emotions there.Last night I attempted to listen to it & got disturbed by a cloth eared nincompoop of a son,who declared it to be "a car crash of an album" since he refused to hear it all and then judge for himself,this remark was taken with a pinch of salt,and the it deserved.Next time I'll go back to headphones,it's better heard like that anyway IMO.Amarok is my second favourite M.O album to Ommadawn,just absolutely love it |
But it's an album that needs a proper listen,and more than once with so much to take in.Some have remarked of being shocked/surprised at first hearing,and thoughts of what has M.O gone & done ect.I always like to keep an open mind when hearing new sounds because of this
That's my problem with Amarok, yep "car crash music" it was one of the Mike albums I needed, back in Dec'04. After reading on here it was Ommadawn 2, I went and bought it, as you may know my ex husband is not really a Mike fan , so I thought I'd play it in the car, I nearly crashed it , a then virtually brand new 04 Reg Ford Focus .
I've had other attempts at listening to Amarok, yes I can hear some beautiful moments in there, but then the peace is shattered by what Alan desribes as a "tantrum" . I want to fall in love with Amarok , but for some reason it scares me .

It finally happened, I'm slightly mad , just very slightly mad
