yes! best thing they've done. better than loveless.
The non-record collecting world is about to experience Honey Power. By far their best song, and I'm a big fan.
Spot on Alex, as per usual.
I never understood why this one didn't make the Masterpiece Record. Soon was on an EP first, so it's not the redundancy thing. Maybe it's because What You Want has a similar guitar line in a different key - that "durur rahn nah nah, durur rahn nah nah" line, which I love. However, Honey Power is a stronger song, and that end part would transition beautifully into the other songs, keeping the "body of work" theme in tact.
I guess Kev had a plan though, and like most of the Pale Saints catalog, I somewhat like knowing about it when others don't. You know, you meet someone who is really moved by the gaze/dream stuff, not just name checking it because it's a "thing" now, and you can say "well if you like that, then check THIS out" and put on Ordeal, True Coming Dream, Way The World Is, or Honey Power and get that great feeling you get when you show someone something special.
After reviewing this thread I realized I've never posted in it until yesterday. What the hell is that? They're only in my top 5 favorite bands and Kevin is one of my top 5 biggest influences...
