Well it was close to the end of 2011 and rumors were spreading that Bill Ryder Jones was ready to release his first album,then a post came up that you could hear the album through guardian.
From the very first notes i knew deep inside me that i was about to hear a masterpiece of modern music.
I was never into classical music or anything similar,but i always loved good soundtracks,with the likes of amelie,goodbye lenin,requiem for a dream,the fountain..e.t.c
It hit me right away and i mean people in the heart,in my most sensitive spot,at the end of it,tears of joy were all over my face,i couldn't believe it that i had just heard something so beautiful and so unique.
You know it's really very difficult to describe the whole album and the whole story of it,you just sit down and hear and you feel it,nothing else less or more.
It's the kind of an album that you could hear in the loneliest of your times,the one that you'll have the headphones in your ears and watch the city from the bus or the subway or when you walk in the park.
If you're heartbroken then maybe this album will seem to you that it's written for the sorrow of your love,except that it didn't,it was written for no specific reason,it is just music that can only bring memories to your head,good or bad.
For me personally it was kind of a medidation,my personal salvation you know what i mean?in the loneliest of my times it made me cry and that's just wonderful(sometimes)because it reminds you that music,true music can sometimes sound so wonderful as IF as an album and as an existence.
So this is for those who dare to love,you know things always end,good or bad,they always end,that's it,that's life and that's the rules and you just have to play with them,either you like it or not,you just have to man,you've got to live with your demons and your drugs and your booze and whatever makes you happy or sad.
You owe it to yourself.
This is for you my dear,i will always love you and remember you.
You're long gone but you're always remembered,deep in my heart and you know this man wrote the soundtrack of my life.
Thanks Bill,appreciate it man.Stay velvet hearted.
If things are about to end,then let me live to see the end.
