  • Alright, here's my start to my favourite.

    (Carpy and HJ let me know if it's already here, I did a look and couldn't see it)

    I love this. I love it. I think it's glorious and the very most perfect opening to the album. The strings are glorious.

    Also, I'm sorry to add... I've been seeing someone for a couple of months. Called Jo. And I'm about to go away travelling about for a bit. And she is staying here.. Because she is furiously independent and career driven. And I am WELL AWARE this track will have different meanings for everyone, but REALLY..... "Jo, I know you would say. Don't wait for me now" ..

    Really? REALLY?!

    Anyway. That freaky coincidence aside. I truly love it.

  • Amazing opener! I wonder when they release film for this track. I found out, that Lenka Rayn H took photographs for Jo video. http://www.filmandtvpro.com/uk/credit.php?uid=1502875 I know it isn't important, but I want to post it.:)
  • All the album is amazing. But the first 3 tracks even more so. You are right to love it.
  • One of my favorite tracks.  Absolutely love the shimmering synths + strings which open the track and the sinister edge just below the surface throughout the song.  Really marvelous opening.  
  • My favourite track , the first track at Manchester , when the strings swept in like pirates boarding a ship on ropes onto my deck at around a minute in , everything I`d done to be there at that moment was worth it and more . The bass was far more prominent in the live version (but no bad thing) .

  • They played Jo on 6 music this morning, hope we get to see the film soon!
  • okay.....i had to dig this up.........i am either completely convinced that it is an intentional homage to LOST HIGHWAY
    all the symbolism is there
