Studio Madness?

Man, recording an album can be such a rollercoaster ride.
I had developed an allegic reaction to the whole process after Finelines. Don't get me wrong, we're proud of that record now....... it was just that it became a very painful process at the time. Its funny how it's the things that you care about that hurt you the most. HOWEVER The recording so far has been really exciting and *gasp* pretty smooth sailing. So I havent broken out in sneezing fits yet. James and I are 99% on the same page and that has helped a great deal. It can feel like describing colours to a blind person when explaining creative issues to someone on another wavelength. Having no A&R twat around to tell us to edit the intros down helps too. Judging a picture before it was painted was never an easy job I guess. And hell, too many cooks...
So far the standout tracks are the ones that pretty much wrote themselves. By 'standout' I mean the songs people get on a first listen. It really feels like they created themselves using you as their tool. Maybe they are gifts from God. Or maybe its just my subconscious doing all the work. Far more likely but not quite as exciting though.
There are other tracks which take a little more to get into......almost as if you are playing catch-up with our creative process which has taken the track futher down the line.
Well, so far... so good
Here's to the madness to come.

I am really glad that you are happy with what your doing. one thing is certain, if you arent enjoying something you shouldnt carry it on and sometimes you need to take time out to remember that. when it becomes a job instead of a passion you will grow to loathe it.

Glad things are back on track!
Looking forward to a finished product, no rush xx

good luck
