Re: Progress updates - Stay on topic!

I think musically this could be a good song.

I just really don't like the lyrics.

If we're talking album news and not new song debut news, that's honestly the only question on the table.
@Sillywhite Will Mercy segue well with production and vision or is this album separate parts of which "Mercy" will be the token quiet song?

Steve Lillywhite CBE ‏ @Sillywhite Close
@tommygroove it is not quiet on the album !

Re: Progress updates - Stay on topic!

I asked Lillywhite:

@Sillywhite Is Mercy the final track on the new album that you and Stefan are so fond of? Or is there an even more uplifting tune yet?!

His reply:

@paulgulyas it is not.

Re: Progress updates - Stay on topic!

I can't visit the boards after that performance. I've been in tears since, some for personal reasons, and some for whatever where this fucking song came out of. This album is gonna be something we aren't expecting, good or bad. I'm banking on really fucking good.

i like how he came out and said there is a song past the 8 minute mark on the record, guess he really is influencing them to get out of this 4-5 minute song comfort zone they've been in.....

So does this mean we will get some album news tomorrow? Or will we have to wait another 3 weeks.

At this point, I think it is best to just stop asking and just wait until it happens.

No one has any info to make an educated guess.

I wish we could at least know what month the album is going to come out, since they're being tighter than a couple of assholes about an actual release date.

Tim Tebow playing quarterback thinks a 2 minute version of #40 is a huge waste of potential greatness.

#40 is not a 2 minute song.

#40 is not a 2 minute song.

It's probably just an intro song like pantala or grux. Would be cool if it is round and round.

It basically is, though. The Warehouse 8 release track was exactly 3 minutes, and with the Davespeak, the song clocks in at under 3.

Do we really want a studio #40 at this point? Pretty sure any studio version would be a bitch-fest.

Re: Progress updates - Stay on topic!

We all "want" one because we all have our dream of what the perfect, final, studio version of #40 is. That's probably why Dave has never finished it. He could never create a version that is as good as each of our dreams.

Watched with a kid who doesn't know DMB well at all. He was in tears by the end of the performance.

It is a beautiful song, but it's hard to judge because it's going to sound much different on the album.

He even took enough pride in his performance to shave beforehand!

Seriously though, this song is fucking amazing. I can't wait to hear what the other bandmates can add to it. I could see this being a very powerful song full band.

Re: Progress updates - Stay on topic!

One performance and Mercy is a very good song. Cannot wait to hear the full band version. And the rest of the album for that matter.

It definitely won't work for the typical Ants troll/critical asshole, but that's to be expected, and reveled in.
