The Music / Re: Aluminum Park - what is it about?
« Last post by Lonndown27 on Jan 18, 2018, 06:27 PM »
I was looking online, and on songmeanings.com I found this:
"In case anyone is still stumped, I believe the song is a message to the listener. The aluminum park represents a place you may have played as child, and he's urging you now, as an adult, to get out in the world and play. Play your own game, make your own way, and enjoy it like you did when you were a kid." - firsttimecaller

fucking love this interpretation cause its exactly what hes saying. I stared at Jim the entire time Aluminum Park was played in my presence, as I've always dreamed of seeing it, and just paid attention to what he was saying and doing. He did actions to each line it seeemed, like on the "YOU GOTTA GET WHAT YOU WANT!" he shook his fist

It was pretty powerful stuff.

LOVE THIS SONG! The tone on that guitar is so metallic and tight

that beacon phone was majestic.  one of my top all time live jacket moments, right up there with anything from the t5 or port chester runs.

would love for the whole beacon run to see the light of day.

Totally agree and it's right up there for me as well. High praise considering some of the things I've been really lucky to have seen but well deserved. It was that great!   :beer:

I wasn't there either but 89 songs over 4 nights and no cameras allowed so very little footage or audio exists. There's a video on youtube of PWW that's pretty good but not much else.

Best Phone I've ever seen!  :thumbsup: 


Agreed Eric, ever since I saw that video I've dreamed of a soundboard quality version of that performance. One of my favorite songs and the best version. :tongue:

Ahh man, right there with ya. 🙏 🙏

The whole run was just amazing and there were so many highlights but that Phone, man it's right at the top and we still continue to talk about how blown away we were by it.

I'm hoping the new live album is from the Beacon. Not just because I was fortunate to have been there but so everyone who wasn't can experience what we were treated to.  :beer:

exactly we need it to be from The Beacon shows...so much amazing music to choose from, especially songs not found on Okonokos.

We need the songs to not have a single repeat from Okonokos, BUT IF THEY DO, I'm okay with just Beats 4 U (with the new solo), Gideon (with the new end jam) and Dondante or Steam, but not more than 3 repeats. This band has so much music that's still not commercially noticed and that's a problem. I want this band to have all the success in the world and we've been lucky to see their gradual rise to this positon.

 The NYE shows gave us all a look at what an arena Jacket band would be like and all I can say is SIGN ME THE FUCK UP (as long as it stays to a bit more than this level, ill be fine, i know our boys will stay grounded like they always do, they deserve everything good in this world).

But the MUSTS of the day are:

AT DAWN:

-PWW from Beacon 2015, we need to hear it at its optimum (a DVD release would be perfect for this type of a scene, Carl headbanging against the light of christ, Jim going nuts and doing his hilariously badass voodoo dancing, oh my god....that youtube video alone makes me shake

-DEATH IS THE EASY WAY

-JUST BECAUSE I DO or HONEST MAN?


TENNESSEE FIRE:

-THEY RAN from Beacon 2015 with those swimming guitars of Carl and Jim, such brilliance!!! They Ran 2015 set a new standard for They Ran for time and all eternity.
-HEARTBREAKIN MAN from Beacon 2015
-EVELYNS NOT REAL
-THE DARK
-IT'S ABOUT TWILIGHT NOW
-THE BEAR
-PICTURE OF YOU
-WAR BEGUN

ISM
-MASTERPLAN
-ROLLIN BACK
-EASY MORNING REBEL
-JUST ONE THING
-DANCEFLOORZZ (we need footage of it as we didnt get that sadly for Okonokos)

Z

no need for a new version of Off The Record unless thats the Merriweather 2017 recording combination hybrid jam with Spring...that IS what its all about if you're gonna be showing songs from Okonokos I in a new light  at all, THATS how you do it!!!
since Z was so well covered by Okonokos (every song except for INTO THE WOODS and KNOT COMES LOOSE) I think it's only fair if maybe just this comes from it:

- KNOT COMES LOOSE
- OFF THE RECORD / SPRING hybrid jam

at least 7 songs from EVIL URGES: my 7 would be:

- EVIL URGES
- ALUMINUM PARK (so underrated and so kickass)
- SMOKIN FROM SHOOTIN
- TOUCH ME II
- HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS
- THANK YOU TOO (possibly???) or maybe LOOK AT YOU??? im in for TU2
- IM AMAZED

5 or 6 from CIRCUITAL

- VICTORY DANCE
- CIRCUITAL
- OUTTA MY SYSTEM
- SLOW SLOW TUNE
- WONDERFUL (i'd trade this for any other great acoustic Jacket song especially inc. EASYWAY)
- HOLDIN ON TO BLACK METAL (i hope they dont include it but i know they will)

a few from WATERFALL

- SPRING
- TROPICS
- COMPOUND FRACTURE
- ONLY MEMORIES REMAIN
 
and that sounds about right from the Waterfall

then odds and ends, odds and sods, pricks and nobs:
- STATE OF THE ART
- DOWN ON THE BOTTOM
- CARRIED AWAY
- TONITE I WANT 2 CELEBRATE WITH U
- COBRA FOR DAMN SURE (i'd even take a weird collage of fifteen different Cobras that extends it to 14 minutes ahahah)

I believe that Magic Bullet and First Time are not part of the 2nd album. I think First Time was purely a song written for Roadies tv show and that's it, and i think Magic Bullet was written/recorded/released in response to some violent current events that were happening at the time.
I agree neither fit into the theme of Waterfall if, in fact, this second album is a continuation of The Waterfall.
Now Throwback is an interesting song in that I don't believe we've gotten a studio release of that song yet but have been treated to some killer live version, and although i don't feel as though that song particularly fits with the Waterfall theme either, i would happier to see that as part of the new studio album than the other two above.
I'll hang up and listen, thanks

Jim confirmed in a a few interviews "The First Time" & "Magic Bullet" were from The Waterfall (one is below). He said something along the lines of them dropping stuff from that album here or there. With magic bullet it just made sense due to the topical nature.

To me, The First Time is very similar to Only Memories Remain & I imagine that is why it didn't make The Waterfall as they'd pick one or the other for that album.

Edit - From Rolling Stone Interview

After all the terrible shootings and stuff that happened, I wrote this song called "Magic Bullet," which was something we did during The Waterfall that we released a few months back as this kind of violence-awareness, "stop the violence" song. There's a song called "The First Time" that we recorded I ended up working with that for the soundtrack to Cameron Crowe's show Roadies. A couple of those things have seen the light of day.

his "scorching" comment was in reference to his musical cravings at the time, and while he did make a reference to the hope that mmj could get together and find the time in the studio to capture that feeling.  If that didnt happen (and i dont think it did), its possible that he pushed that feeling into his solo arena.

Im curious about the other waterfall material.  So far, we have heard two songs (first time and magic bullet) out of that grouping and i wonder if they were selected for single release due to their disposability (maybe they wanted to save the good stuff for a proper album release) OR because they feel thy are two of the better ones.  I really enjoyed First Time at NYE but Magic Bullet has always been very boring to me, as well as lower quality compared to everything else they have made.  If they are not super excited about the tracks maybe it's better saved for a record store day thing down the line.  If they are really excited about it then that's another thing but I have to wonder why it hasn't been released already if that's the case. 


 From the Rolling Stone Interview I posted above.. I know in another article he used "scorching" to describe what he wanted to do as well.

You say your creative mindset has changed. What exactly do you mean?

I don't really even know. It's so weird. It's kinda similar to the solo thing. With this record, all these songs popped out together they joined hands and jumped out of the airplane together. I don't even know why. I was writing other songs, and all these songs of a certain type jumped out and said they wanted to be the core of the next Jacket record. There's something propulsive or rock & roll about them.

That's how it feels now. But as I know from past records, I can't even say that's how it'll end up. You'll walk in with these rock & roll songs, and you'll walk out with a record of the saddest, dreamiest ballads. You never know what's actually gonna happen when you get down to recording, and that's one of the most fun things about it.
