am I wrong in thinking that this song is by far and away the highlight of Alopecia by Why?, I fucking love it
not by far though, 'simeons dilemma' and 'by torpedo or chrons' come close
is the one that stands out for me. Im a bit boar of the album though now.
then i begin to lose interest.
is sleeping on your back really better for the spine? But it's so uncomfortable!
the opening few lines are everything that I dislike about why?
"I sleep on my back because its good for the spine and coffin rehearsal
I know a psychic who reads her own palms and the findings are personal"
Yes, yes, very glib and hilarious, but does it mean anything or evoke anything? Not really. The lacklustre indie rythm guitar-y stuff on it doesen't add much.
I really love why? though. Songs like simeons dilema are much better. It has an actual narrative, great production and all the usual one liners but with ACTUAL GOOD POETIC word choice and cadence and stuff.
I've overplayed it and it's now not quite as great now, but when I first heard it, fucking hell it was awesome.
The Vowels pt2. and The Hollows are also favourites, but I don't think it's anywhere near as good as Elephant Eyelash. The reason that Fatalist Palmistry is so good is because it isn't in the same gloomy tone as the rest of the album, and doesn't have the boring repetative delivery that Yoni seems to have adopted on the rest of Alopecia.
it's much better than nasaly indie singing.
