This ONE goes to Eleven

#15027 3 years, 6 months ago
Fishing for some love for The Eleven

No more time to tell how
This is the season of what
Now is the time of returning
With thought jewels polished and gleaming

Now is the time past believing
The child has relinquished the reign
Now is the test of the boomerang
Tossed in the night of redeeming

Eight sided whispering hallelujah hatrack
Seven faced marble eye transitory dream doll
six proud walkers on jinglebell rainbow
Five men writing in fingers of gold
Four men tracking down the great white sperm whale
Three girls wait in a foreign dominion
Ride in the whale belly
Fade away in moonlight
Sink beneath the waters
to the coral sand below
Now is the time of returning

there certainly ain't enough time to tell how... that's for sure.

maybe it is a quality vs quantity thing. i get happy with glimpses, but it sure is nice to go deep sometimes.

I offer this recording as evidence. It starts to go all wrong shortly after the 4min mark.

I was at this show with my friend who was hanging with Lucy. He was having a great time but was a silent as the grave. I mean he literally didn't say a word all night until the 4:20 mark in this recording when he looked at me and said, totally stone-faced serious, "What the fuck? They just sang two verses at once!" Something about it was hilarious and we just broke down laughing.

I've only heard them pull this new arraignment off one out of four times I've heard them play it.

Sorry to be negative, but since you brought up The Eleven I thought I'd mention it. I'd really like to hear other people's thoughts on this...

I always loved the version on the Other Ones ' Only the Strange Remain Album
they hadn't played the eleven for a long time at that point and you can hear the joy coming through

OK...LOL! You're right. I'm not trying to be too harsh (that's why I even apologized for being negative earlier). It's not even the flubbing of the lyrics though... it's the arrangement. My favorite part of the song is the "countdown" and don't like it broken up within the verses.

The Eleven is too good a song to scrunch it up like that in my opinion, and I have been wondering for a while what other people think of it.

I LOVE THE ELEVEN TOO!!!!!

The Eleven's near the top of my list of favorites. Great song. I think they could jam it out a little more though to make it even better.
