Death of Fathers [Aug. 14th, 2004|04:28 pm]
[emotional state |contemplativecontemplative]
[song on the wind |Poe - Haunted]

a favorite album of mine is Poe's Haunted. i don't actually own a physical copy of it, but i have a pritty decent rip on my 'top. I haven't listened to it in a while. The album is really about her father's death, and dealing with it. and a few other things in there. but she has all these recordings throughout the album that, i've been told, are of her father. so yea. this is the first time i've listened to it since june. i really do love this album. "Don't you mess, with a little girl's dream, 'cause she's lible to grow up mean" Poe "Control"

amazing music

Not only is the album amazing, she also puts on one hell of a show. I saw her with Depeche Mode and in her own club show (although hearing her preform "hey pretty" with her brother was rather like watching Anglenea Jolie read the story of o to her brother, not a pleasant image).

I can't wait until she gets out from under her record label and starts making music again.

being a book lover...

and not a music lover...I recommend the book if you are into creepy.

It's as deep and beautiful and haunted and frustrating as the album.

Death of a Mother

That album spoke to me when I heard it as well.
The recordings are indeed of her father, from tapes found after his death, I believe. I read that the album was the result of her entering into a dilogue with the recordings.
One thing that has always bothered me was the loss of any tapes I once had with my mother's voice on them. Because I can no longer remember what she sounded like.

Wow, is it about that? I got really into that album about two months ago, but haven't given a lot of thought into most of the lyrics. The title track always struck me as being about a break-up. I also think the album version of Hey Pretty is much better than the remix that made it onto mainstream airplay.

Sting's The Soul Cages is another spectacular concept album that was written about his father's death.
