    Brooke and Willie, not everybody likes to dissect and analyze songs. Some people do just like to enjoy the music without thinking about the song too hard. And there certainly ain't nothing wrong with that, IMHO. I'm probably somewhere in between. When I first hear a song, I tend to decide if I like it first based on the music and melody. Then, after I hear it awhile, I usually then will listen closer to the lyrics. I often love simple, straightforward lyrics that you don't have to think too much about. But then, I am also intrigued by the more complex lyrics that are ambiguous or open to the listener's interpretation. That's when my analytical side kicks in. That what's so great about it - there ain't no right or wrong way!

    Well, I do believe Soda and Freypower should try writing reviews of songs or cds for pay. Or fun, possibly, in their case. I'm sure there is a market for this talent. Now, maybe they could only do it for artists they like, but have either of you thought of it? Seriously!

    My daughter actually did a bit of this a while back and was quite good, imo. She didn't get it from me!

    Brooke, thank you so much for saying that, but if you go back and re-read what I wrote about No Fun Aloud and The Allnighter, I think I barely scratched the surface with those. I felt I needed to make a special effort for Strange Weather, partly because I believe it sadly never received the attention it deserved. In my case I'm not trained in writing about the music itself - I can throw in the occasional 'good chord change' but that's about it.

    Dreamer is correct - sometimes it's better just to enjoy it!

    Well, you guys do an exceptional job with this. I really enjoy reading them and it makes the music all the more enjoyable when I listen and remember some of your thoughts about it. Carry on!

    I agree with you, I really enjoy to read the reviews, thanks for that!

    Aw, you guys are sweet! I didn't do the song-by-song review for the other albums, but I figured the album that I felt was the most brilliant of Glenn's solo career deserved the kind of time it takes to write these up.

    Not that the others didn't. And with this kind of positive response, I'll go back and do those too when I get a chance!

    Also, let's not forget the videos from this! Here's the streaming ones:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mlD1OEj-6g"]Part of Me, Part of You[/ame]

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igADRpd7ncc"]I've Got Mine[/ame]

    The guy who posted "Love in the 21st Century" on YouTube disabled embedding so you'll have to click on the title in the top bar above the video itself to see it. Honestly, since he got this from my site, it kind of disappoints me that he's disabled embedding.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4ffKTxUwnc"]Love in the 21st Century[/ame]

    You gotta stream this one using another site:

    River of Dreams

    Of course, if you want to download them instead of stream them, they're all here:

    Honestly when we do Glenn's video Survivor I think that one will be the first to go. Let's just say the video isn't as good as the song.

    That video makes EIDN look good, and that's hard to do
