I mean  understand left as political direction of course but why should that be important in terms of producing music? So I guess it's another language-barrier-mystery to me  :lol

What Mark should have done years ago, for variation, is to hire Daniel Lanois and give him free hands. Lanois is the man behind two of Dylan's best records, and the moody atmosphere on those is sublime.

Yes, Oh, Mercy and Time Out Of Mind. I agree that they are among Bob's best albums. I remember that Guy once has been asked about Lanois and his answer was no, he is way too left or something like that. Never understood exactly what he meant by that.

Interesting! Maybe out of left field...?  :think

Stunningly beautiful track reminiscent of 'follow the ribbon'

Like I just recently watched "Interstellar" for the first time, and it's one of the worst movies I ever seen. But it's quite emotional as well, once you try to look past all its flaws. So I'm in this constant battle of admiring the emotional side, the accuracy of [most] physics portrayed in the movie. But I can't always look past all the flaws, from the ridiculous, childish and saccharine plot, happy end, lazy tributes to other sci-fi movies, the supposed main human villain being named "Mann", as in "man", you see? Man is bad! Also, weak women characters, deus ex machina all over the place. But the music is so great, and the practical effects are so great, and the science is so good, stop tearing me apart! The main question is — would I describe it as the best movie ever made? Would I watch it again? And the answer is NO.

And you honestly don't think this means anything?

Come on that's the harshest of criticism. Better to say it doesn't mean anything to you. Doesn't mean it lacks intrinsic artistic value....

What I said maybe was misunderstood because a language barrier.
What i said about "The songs need to mean something" it's not about don't having meaning to someone. Every person reacts different to, in our case, music.

What i wanted do say when the new MK material has a lack of meaning, in reality is about lack of purpose/passion/intensity/power.
Nowadays, is too much generic. Almost played on autopilot.

The song WMG is there, when i listen, i feel that something is missing and i am not talking about MK's guitar work. As i said before, a MK album is made by several people.

Pavel said a interesting stuff about MK change his BG/96ers habits.
I totally agree with him.

The funniest thing is for us sceptics, at least I'm talking about myself, blind admiration and constant praise are as disturbing as constant scepticism for someone who's more economical with criticism. I've read things like it's the best song they ever heard, and people cried listening to it. Then I wonder, if "Watch Me Gone" makes you cry, what "Schindler's List" theme will do to you? Annihilate?

The truth, as always, is something in between. There is a kernel of overall laziness in this production, Mark being Mark, Guy being Guy, and the song is touching if you're looking for it. "Time for me to disappear" coming from MK is a bit of revelation and touching as hell. The question is, on this scale with emotions on one side, and rationality on the other, what wins? To me, it's, unfortunately, the latter.

I think this a result from how Mark wants it to be nowadays. Deliver these "simple" songs. Surely, he or others could arrange these songs sound more like DS or even that Knopfler from Shangri-La or Get lucky period with typical drums and bass and more easy-to-catch structure. I am lucky, because I find at least something interesting on every song that he delivers.

I saw in a comment on YT that you put the FS-1 on middle position. Sounds great  :thumbsup
