Archived from the original on July 1, Retrieved April 30, The follow-up single "Don't Hurt Yourself" peaked at Classic Rock ranked Marbles 11 on their end-of-year list for Marbles was the second Marillion album in a row produced by Dave Meegan, who had already helped the band craft Brave and Afraid of Sunlight , albums to which Marbles was compared by both reviewers as well as the band itself.
While Marbles is not strictly a concept album , it is tied together by thematic threads. Several of the songs are connected via segues or crossfades. The four parts of the title track work as musical interludes, but they also tell a continuing story about the narrator's childhood fascination with marbles , collecting them and losing most of them over the years. Furthermore, the song "The Damage" includes multiple lyrical call-backs to "Genie"; "Ocean Cloud" mentions "the invisible man" and in a key moment of "Neverland", the line "you're gone" appears.
Unfortunately, after Seger's version was recorded, but before it was released, Joe Cocker came out with his uptempo cover of the same song. Cocker was already an established star, and his recording of "Midnight Rider" totally pre-empted Seger's version. Seger: "[We] had our own feel on it A good example is Midnight Rider Just after Back in '72 came out, Jesse and I made one of our trips to Detroit to drop in unannounced at Punch's office. Sometimes we'd actually see Punch. Other times we'd just check out Bob's schedule and pick up whatever promotional materials were on the shelves in the front hallway.
On this trip, we both scored the Midnight Rider poster -- reproduced here in mercifully small format. The house itself, if memory serves, is the actual house where Punch and Palladium had their offices. The bicycle by the steps in front symbolizes And the people in the window are, I don't know, doing something. The small type around the side says "Midnight Rider from the Album Back in ' As if that piece of art isn't enough to stun you silly, we also later acquired Back in '72 stickers.
Actually Punch sent them to me. I sent him a dollar, and he sent me a couple of stickers and my dollar back. By Punch, I mean Punch, not some Punch-assistant. In my limited experience, Punch is nothing if not hands on. Basically the sticker was a type treatment of the album name, incorporating a lot of news headlines from the times. There was a more complex poster version which I took from a bar once, but did I have the sense to save it? The album was recorded partly at Muscle Shoals, partly with his own band, because Seger couldn't afford to record it all at Muscle Shoals.
I ended up doing the rest of the album pretty much alone with the Muscle Shoals guys, and I thought again, 'file these guys names away for future reference because they're something else. The Reprise release shipped with a promotional flyer tucked around the album, reading as follows:. Maybe the new name was inserted in the flyer without anyone taking the time to notice that the sentence was no longer true.
More recently Bob has been touring and recording with a quintet of musicians he picked up in Tulsa in the fall of Bill Mueller -- now known as Blue Miller -- has a fine web site of his own. The minimally eerie "Darkness" finds him taking on the perspective of Las Vegas music festival shooter Stephen Paddock, occupying the role with the same chilling intensity that made his earlier albums so unsettling. The substandard production of the last few records is also improved on, with help from familiar friends Dr.
Dre in particular on the creeping beat of "Lock It Up," where Dre 's trademark slinkiness provides a backdrop for Em and Anderson. Paak to trade inspired verses. Eminem flexes his technical abilities in the song's final quarter, spitting a storm of dizzying rhymes that comes close to outdoing his hyperspeed flow on "Rap God. Eminem still can't quite get over himself, breaking the fourth wall to rant at his critics and detractors enough to take away from the more imaginative material.
There's also no shortage of punny punch lines and eye roll-eliciting lyrical reaches Including a reference to a '90s sitcom alien in "Marsh" with the stunningly bad line "With all this A-B-C shit, I'm starting to sound like Alf a bit.
This particular act in Eminem 's story is a strange one, with much of his lates output tarnishing earlier glories. Luckily, Music to Be Murdered By fares better than records that could have just as well been left in the vault. It presents an accurate depiction of where Eminem is at in this weird stage of his career, one where his best work comes when he's able to step out of his own towering shadow.
