Just kidding. This CD has nothing to do with global warming. At all. It’s not even made out of recycled plastic.
So there. Anyway, lyrically, Cloud City has a bit of a spiritual undercurrent but for the most part stay pretty ambiguous. Take the track “To Cut Yourself Deep”, which moans “you are not here / so I am fine / you’re like a television set / you keep me from being alive / and I suppose you’re used to this / I suppose you’re used to this / you cover up so quickly / and you’d be gone in five seconds if you didn’t feel lonely”. It’s not as emo as it sounds… but the vibe is there. Standout track was kind of a toss up between “Blind” and “These Hands Are Cold”.
Both are great songs but for completely different reasons. “Blind” is beautiful plodding mood music that’s tempo sort of meanders… while “These Hands Are Cold” is a more upbeat, catchy tune that has a kind of a cerebral tone and some cool keys. I’d probably give it to “These Hands Are Cold” if I were forced to choose only one. Read more on Last.fm.
