Yes, I said this post would come on Saturday. But I was busy with work, and a lamb dinner with my in-laws. Which was really nice. On Sunday I was a little geek in other ways.
But today I am back stronger!
And I am back with my favorite song on “Heavy Western” – Lars Lind’s latest album!
Today’s song is number eight in line, and carries the title “Cruise”
Of course I have some words from Lars himself, and this is what he has to say
- The heaviest track on the record. Very riff oriented. When composing instrumental music it is important with strong themes. I think I succeeded on this song. It kicks off with a heavy intro riff, the verse section leaves room for the lead guitar to step into the light, and the chorus sounds like Joe Satriani and Steve Morse playing with AC/DC or ZZ TOP. The solo section is a bit more loose with just two chords going back and forth. The song then ends with the intro riff with me soloing over it. I think this will do very well in a live set.
This song is just awesome! It is really rocked, and a bit more heavy than the previous songs. That the song opens with a heavy riff is just fantastic! And it keeps getting better and better as the song goes on. This is a song that falls into the middle of musical taste, and I picked this as my favorite the very first time I listened to the album. The themes are clearly distinct, and I agree with Lars that this song would do well live. Maybe I’ll hear it live sometime in the future? I really hope so.
As with some previous songs, I have to disappoint you here as well. Youtube has only a short version of the song, and you miss the most fantastic things about the song.
But do not despair – you know the drill.
Download the song from iTunes or Amazon, and enjoy the song to its full extend. Or purchase the album here.
Here’s today’s shortversion
I wont be able to post any entry tomorrow, but on Wednesday or Thursday I will end the rundown on “Heavy Western”, with the last song on the album.
Until then – enjoy the previous songs I’ve already written about.
