I FEEL YOU vs BARREL OF A GUN

Postby modecollector » Thu Nov 18, 2004 10:14 am

Hi all, yes it's another off those vs threads you know and love.:icon_wink
Barrel of a gun
a delightful boom boom phiff drumbeat and plenty of guitar strangs with real atmosphere. The mmmmmmmmming in the chorus and daves seedy gravelly vocal. A great DM track but alas as the line from the song says "I'm not the one"
With I feel you, you get a somehow tuned white noise intro, a truly mammoth vocal performance from Dave, excellent swirling noise effects after the chorus. Also in there are distant alarms sounds and a sort of crazed cowbell noise amazing. A great line " the morning of our love", kind of describes the feelings of newness in love,the beginning of something good.
"lead me through Babylon" my vote goes to I feel you.:icon_cool

Nice delivery in that post Mr.Collector, I'm going for BOAG because it quite simply kicks IFY up the ass :icon_wink

No competetion,it's not even close......Barrel of a Gun is one awesome tune :icon_cool

It´s hard choice, but I pick IFY because it´s killer. The Video is perfect with Dave´s best perfomance.

I've never been a "massive" fan of the stomping tunes PJ, IFY and BOAG

Though theres bits of each that I do like the're just not my favourite type of DM song.. If I had to pick one though it would by IFY for the way the song kicks in after the first chorus and the choral sounds later in the song (good work Alan ;))

My vote goes to I feel you
The intro on the live version and the way it kicks in is great

Two of my favourite tracks. But my vote goes to BOAG- it was my first DM tune and the lyrics are just great. Kind of angry and hopeless, was perfect for how I felt at the time. Still one of my all time favourite tracks.

Without hesitation : I feel you.

I never listen to BOAG on Ultra. I go directly to the second track.
