|Hi all. I still find exposed to be one of the greatest live albums i have ever heard. |
Does anybody agree?
Yep. I always thought I was the only one, but I much prefer the Exposed version of TB to the studio. It's better recorded, it has more punch, there's no darned vocals used in The Bell , and the strings make my breath catch in my throat. Between the original TB, The Orchestral, and Exposed TB, it's no contest for me.
I know, I know: heresy.
I like the live Incantations better than the studio as well, though not as strongly. Mostly, I think the edits work in favor of the piece.
Exposed is my desert island disk.
[A]t some point it always occurs to [artists]... that they can do this one thing for the rest of their lives, they can be successful to the outside world but not... to themselves. That's the moment an artist decides who he or she is. If they keep on risking failure, they're still artists. ~ S.Jobs
