An Amazing Album
What Did People Not Understand?
The instant I heard "These Days" I was immediately taken by...everything! The lyric content, the arrangements, the harmonies, the haunting atmosphere, everything about this album is brilliant. I am originally from Australia, now living in New York, and I know this album was not a success for the band in America. In other parts of the world it was very successful (number one in Australia I proudly say), and I just do not understand what the American people did not understand about this album. The lyrics were thought provoking and yes it made you think, but that is a good thing. It was not a dark album, as has been suggested. Just different but so damn good all the same. This album was a progression for the band and perhaps people did not like that change. Change is a good thing people. Take another listen, for those that do not like this album. Give it a second chance. You will not be sorry. I still enjoy this album now, as I did when I first heard it way back when. I just love it.
