Re: Big announcement tomorrow

New song  "Time Clocks"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7116ryQV-I


  like: melody, lyrics, Joe's singing

  don't like: video - for some reason gave me creeps and overall uneasy feeling, background vocals presence and how much was added on to good melody, to the point of almost completely covering it down with decoration.



   But out of three songs revealed this one I like the most.

New single "Time Clocks" is out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7116ryQV-I

I don't know.  When the song kicks in I dig it.  I was kind of iffy for the first part.  The lyrics were a bit awkward in the first few sections, but the vocals are hard to discern. I'm not sure what it is with the mix, maybe just how I'm listening at work.  When the song kicks in, though, it's cool.  One of those that I need to listen to a few times and I'm thinking it'll grow on me. I kind of like that it has a lot of different things mixed together, and the chorus is super epic.

Re: Big announcement tomorrow

i like it...I really have only listened to each of them a couple times so far...nothing wowed me but nothing made me cringe. It usually does take me a few listens. I liked the beginning twangy lick...and the video. At first yes it was a bit creepy with the guy underwater but at the end it all came together and made sense. Like the memories were keeping him from breathing sort of then he buried them...but didn't toss them. so he wasn't drowning in them , I dunno. Of course while i don't punch an actual time clock I do work a Monday thru Friday 9 to 5 type job and always have so I don't relate to Joe in that way. The vid though reminded me of something a close friend helped me with once when i mentioned i couldn't get certain things off my mind...they told me a therapist had helped them once learn how to take those thoughts and file them in folders in your brain. Like you don't have to get rid of the thoughts completely but if they are preventing you from dealing with the present, file them away and you can pull the file back out if you need it but it gets them out of the conscious. Easier said than done of course
I imagine the vid kind of relates to maybe his relationship with ex girlfriend, I dunno. I hope though he can take the sadness of some of the memories and put that away so he can see when something good comes along next.
But he might have had zippo to do with the vid lol. over all its kind of a sad song, again. Gotta love the Blues! big_smile

this is neat, Caveman posted on his facebook a picture of his notes from the recording of the song.
I think anyone should be able to see it via this link, even if you aren't registered on facebook but i'm not sure.

Album review: JOE BONAMASSA – Time Clocks https://getreadytorock.me.uk/blog/2021/ … me-clocks/

Re: Big announcement tomorrow

Anyone hear anything about a Target special edition w/ bonus tracks?  Target.com right now just has the basic disc as a preorder.  For whatever reason I get the feeling there won't be a version w/ bonus tracks this time around but I don't have any extra information, just speculation.

I see that someone has asked this question of Target on their website.
The rather evasive answer stated that Royal Tea was a target exclusive but failed to address the actual question asked re Time Clocks.
I know this doesn’t really help but they didn’t actually say they weren’t doing an exclusive, so it might be worth holding on that pre-order.

Lester...

Re: Big announcement tomorrow

I don't bother pre-ordering.  They might do a bonus edition yet, but just gut feel is that it's something they've done for the last what, 3-4 records, and maybe it's run its course.  We'll see.  I already blocked off some time on the 29th to head to Target just in case, which I did for the last couple records.

Re: Big announcement tomorrow

I don't pre-order as they don't give a price break to those that do
And I don't need to be the first one on the block to get it either

Pre-order does help place the album in the charts though
