Ah but what a whine, gives me the shivers.

an extended whine

Love the whole album ... I know Sia has recorded solo ... but did she leave them? if so, too bad ... this was a good band ... {#Sunny}

Agreed.

I do think the first two albums blow away the most recent two, BUT...

The first two albums are filled with some of the best tunes ever recorded.  Hard to live up to that...

They evolved into something different, and that's fine with me.  I love what Sia did on the 3rd album and the new crop of singers do on this album.  Some great videos on youtube of these guys working on material in the studio.  Great stuff.

..".dissonant chords are 'active'; traditionally they have been considered harsh and have expressed pain, grief, and conflict." —Roger Kamien (2008), p.41"

Perhaps this song is about expressing pain, grief and conflict....just flipping the coin, that is all.

Dissonant? Maybe. Resonant? Absolutely. It's like she threw her voice into her forehead before it came out her nose.

I too am amazed this song's never been played. I thought I heard of it from RP and that's why I added it to my collection, but I guess not.
Stop your mumbing and sing?
Is that Pink I hear? Nice song, by the way/

...this is really interesting and not at all what i expected...


Wow, this has never played before?  You've gotta be kidding?  It totally fits.  Go Sia, go Sia!

Somehow I could have sworn I'd heard this on RP before.  I guess its because I've played it so many times out of my personal collection.  Its like a body part.
