But it still isn't Chicago, so it doesn't matter. Tongue (I can say that, since I'm from Southern Illinois.)

At any rate - great Illinoisey noise.

Just getting in a dig at the "anything that's not Chicago doesn't exist" mentality some folks have about my former home state (including its own government). People out here especially seem to believe the Windy City occupies roughly 97.3% of the state.

I love songs like "I Believe In You" and darn near all of half of Shotgun Angel, but it's clear they're a step away from where the rest of the recording's going.

Alarma is all focus. Even when it goes a little pretty, it's going with rough edges and a welcomed uneasiness. "Walls Of Doubt" actually fit with tunes like the title track and "Colored By" rather than sounding like they're from different albums.

On Alarma, Terry tightened up the band's focus and everything got really consistent.


Yeah, it's like the first three records they are getting ready to leave,
and with iAlarma! they are going somewhere.
The road trip has started! Pleased


and then it derailed on Vox Humana when the guitars went to the back and the keys came out front Frown

and then came back full-force on DFBB! Pleased

Comment on VH Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

The shift to synthesized and electronic music was completely in character for the theme of the recording, as well as the overly electronic, over-produced music of the 80's time period ("It's the 80's....).

Rob Watson did excellent work on this recording, as did Tim who substituted well for the missing Jerry. I also liked Ed's drumming, very different than the previous recordings. There is also a really good mix of songs, and a few are my favorites even today (Travelog, Dance Stop, WWC, Sanctuary).

My only complaint was the lousy job they did on the first CD reissue, where they screwed up the track split on side 2.

As I see it, VH derailed nothing. Yeah it was different than Alarma, but so was Doppelganger, and so are almost all DA recordings. It just continued to set the tone for DA where you never knew where the next one would go, so don't get too comfortable with the sound!

Definetly Dogs/VOL.

Thanks for the compliments.

Writing stuff really makes me appreciate good choruses in songs, which are always the hardest part for me. And it's funny that some really catchy choruses (like, for example, the song "Alarma") are really simple two or three note things. For me, HD and iAlarma! (from what I've heard of the last one, anyway) cemented Terry as a consistent songwriter. As much as I like "Daniel Amos" and SA (from, again, the couple of songs I've heard), when they started to rock, the songwriting got more original, too.

Just my two cents.

I agree, and if you think of the overall melodic content of VH it really isn't all that different. You can really hear the progression as the sound develops for the AC. I'm a guitarist and would love to hear a little more guitar in the mix, but that is just my personal issue. The songs however are awesome and stand up very well in and of themselves.
William Blake, Dance stop, and Travelog are the ones that jump out in my mind.

you've lived a very sheltered life my friend.

I dont even catagorize VH as anything out of place in the A.C.

To me the entire project from !Alarma! to FS is like a beautiful string of thought about mans plight (and flight) toward what lies ahead.
Its like the 4 points of the compass-each direction unique, but all used as a guide to "find direction"..or is it distance ? Cool

Yea it's funny, Vox Humana was my intro to DA as well. I was on a bus going to some youth rally and one of the kids had it. We listened to it over and over. I think I head Dance Stop at least twenty times over the whole journey. It was great!
It was years before I heard the entire Chronicles. And wow. There is this deep philosophical thread throughout all the lyrric and the music even when dated(VH) is creative and quirky Taylor at his best.

If all I ever knew of DA was Vox I would think they were just another 80's keyboard band. And I can say that because I was an 80's child. Graduated HS in '90. I hated most of the keyboard/synth stuff. Talk about sounding dated! I can bear Vox only because the lyrics are good.
