Is this in order? 21 songs? One of the longest AV gigs ever? Setlist does seem odd. 7 tracks from SA are grouped together.

Listened to it twice now. Have no plans for a third.

I don't know why, but I've really gotten to like Fever! a lot. It's so catchy.

Mumu 09 Jul 2017 19:44

Fever, Marionnettes with halo... almost all sounds great to me. Maybe a little bit less for Sexyland.

MarianGoldfan123 09 Jul 2017 20:37

Sexyland is awesome, though I can't understand a word Marian is saying throughout half of it. Otherwise it's brilliant.

Nevermore is brilliant. I love the gritty feel that it has.

I like Sexyland so long as I don't think too much about it. But then it's so enthusiastic despite being about a homeless person sleeping in underground trains and stations.

Where can I read the meanings of each song? Nevermore sounds like it's about someone having a nightmare or something along those lines.. I'd love to read the backstories behind all of the AV songs.

Marian is often vague on this but he posted the story behind Sexyland on the mailing list at yahoogroups. He encourages people to find their own meaning.

That's great. A few of his songs have obvious meanings behind them, such as Fallen Angel (both the title and chorus lyrics give away the meaning of it) yet a bulk majority of them have me stumped.

On a side note: This may be weird, but I think Marian should consider modernizing Into The Dark and maybe even use it on the next album. My biggest hope is Criminal Girl will find it's way to the next album :)
