If you truly have to ask that then I despair....

It's f***ing hideous.

I just watched this. Man, Jacob's Ladder sounds terrific on piano.
It makes me think of "Asturias", a Spanish piece that was initially written on piano by Isaac Albeniz about a century ago. After he died, someone transcribed it to the guitar, where it took on new life and became part of the canon.

Why?

Where to start?

The music is average, nothing special, but those cheesy, ham-handed awkward lyrics are dreadful.

The thing is the subject matter is interesting, even worthy, but Neil approaches it with all the nuance and finesse of a teenager with Aspergers,

Very poor...

I guess I'll have to disagree. I don't see many, if any, bands tackling the topics raised by the band in 1993. I mean, singing about tolerance to homosexuality in 1993? Novel to say the least.

I already made the point that the subject matter itself was entirely worthy.

It's the cringe-inducing awkwardness of the execution which makes my buttocks clench with embarrassment whenever I hear it.

Force Ten
The Pass
Losing It
Ghost Rider
Witch Hunt
Dreamline
Bravado

... Basically ditto'd a lot of other folks and added Force Ten. There's something almost nostalgic about it - it reminds me of summer and the serenity that comes with a thunderstorm. One of my favorites. :heart:
