WOAD was hyped up before release, and look how that worked out!

This one's gonna be better J.  The Disney song aside, I believe it will outshine the Dream.

I don’t want to get to excited but that song-by-song description is getting my hopes really high.

Did the video have a band in it and if so, who was there?? The still photo looks intriguing. If there is a band there, I am more inclined to think he is rehearsing for a tour.

Yes, big band/orchestra playing 'live' in the video, in what looked like a large bar. Patti and Charlie the only members I recognised. I believe it was all filmed for an album documentary rather than for any tour rehearsal (apparently no tour planned for this album).

Ah. Here's hoping the tour plans change. I would love to see Bruce mix it up.

Still wish I had the patience to wait to listen to an album in one seating but those days are over with the damn interweb. 

Besides which, I could die of poisoning tomorrow.

Or be hit by a Tuscon train.

I cant listen to a whole album in one sitting without going to the toilet a couple of times. And perhaps a wee snooze.

Like Brucie we are not getting any younger. He should just release the damn thing on one day without telling us, like young popster Ed Sheerin does. That way I wouldn't have to sweat it that I'll make it to the 14th June intact.

Let's just be thankful he's not putting out anything similar to that Sheeran fella.  I couldn't take a "I'm in Love With Your Body" from Brucey.

I wish Bruce did was Eminem did for Kamikaze. Just threw a post up on social media announcing the album dropped on all major streaming services.

Agreed,

He did want the Darkness album to appear 'as if by magic', according to Marsh.  It was a reaction to all the hype over BTR.

My, how times have changed.

Definitely getting the concept album thing when I go through the song lyrics in the order the tracks appear. Loosely it seems to go:

- breezy opening of a travelling dude

- signs of getting tired of travelling

- rejoining up a past relationship 

- odd jobs and relationship breakdown

- serious patch of dark loss and regret

- closure and acceptance of what’s lost

- maybe the hint of something new 

- ambiguous ending!

Cool, except the former is a meaningless term so I'll accept acceptance.

What I don’t get is, if he’s not going to tour anyway, why did he sit on this for so long?

Of course.

I always had him marked as different.

.

I did it with Steven's LP.   Followed along with the lyrics.  It helps with vinyl because the lyric sleeves have bigger writing.   

It was a joyous evening.  Like old times.

Will do the same with Western Stars.

Like old times.
