Music for a New Society
John Cale
(1982)
1202jcale
An interesting album to listen to these days.
The pain that John Cale is going through is very evident here on this disk.
The music is haunting
It is sparse in places.
It is disturbing to some extent. The song Taking Your Life in Your Hands is a pleasant tune but once you get the gist of the lyrics you realise it is about a mother that gone on a killing spree while her kids are at school. The other songs vary between loss of hope, emotional betrayal and despair.
Who’s up for some Cheetos?
This is a nice album to listen to every once in a while. I guess that’s why I listen to it so rarely.
But the music is nice…
