K2.0 - Best track?

Postby Sleeping_Jeeva » Thu Feb 11, 2016 6:20 pm

So I'd thought I'd kick it off...

What's the best track on the album?

For me, no contest... MOUNTAIN LIFTER!

Now that is classic Kula.

What's yours?

Hard to pick a favourite since all tracks are really good. But right now it stands between Here Come My Demons and Mountain Lifter.

I like Oh Mary, incidentally whose voice is at the beginning of that song? Sounds familiar but i can't place it

Hard to pick one but Love B (With U) for me is a standout

I agree, Love B With U is really special. But then my favourites keep changing, I keep discovering new things with each listening. Holy Flame is great, and despite initial reservations High Noon keeps growing on me. I love the guitar towards the ending of the song. Demons is lovely too, as it keeps changing pace, and the ending is very touching.

And the best is that the entire record makes for wonderful live material.

So far, it's Infinite Sun, and Oh Mary. With the latter being my favorite at this point. But in all fairness I haven't been able to really absorb the music properly, I've only heard it on the streaming preview once or twice. Once I get my physical copy and really get into it, who knows?

I love this song a lot, too! Especially as "Oh Mary, what you've done" gets so full od despair at the end.

As for the voice at the beginning, I read that it's David Hockney (if I get the Google translation right):
Aber nein, natürlich werden Kula Shaker auch 2016 wieder ungehört als albernes Oldie-Thema belächelt werden. Von denselben Kritikern, die das gleiche Album, wäre es von Tame Impala erschienen, in den Himmel hochschreiben würden. Aber Träumen wird ja noch erlaubt sein, oder, wie die britische Pop-Art-Legende David Hockney am Anfang von „Oh Mary“ zitiert wird: „In your head you can go anywhere, didn’t you know that? You can even go to the very edge of the universe. You’ll never get there on the bus or spaceship or whatever they think of.“

My three favourite songs at the moment are "Death of Democracy", "Love B (With You)" and "Oh Mary". Yet, it's the first track that actually hypnotises me and takes me away... gets me ready for the whole album.
