    Yeh, not sure what happened to Scott, he used to write such great songs. IMO, traditional instruments suited his style better.


    And to think, this didn't even make it on to the 'Fisherman's Blues' album.

    Kind of agree with your 2nd sentence. But imo. equal what instrumentation and sound he and his guys provide, Mike Scott always and still writes and with his (various) band members perform best of the best music stuff ever brought to the world, call me fanboy lol.
    To me, he is the greatist rock poet since they formed in 1981

    But Halie, try this ... concert 2019, traditional instrumentation

    ... they didn't and don't really abandon "the old ways", and you can find on almost every post 80s album something that reminds of their old stuff of the 80s.

    Tracks:
    When Ye Go Away
    Fisherman's Blues
    Dead Flowers (The Rolling Stones cover)
    London Mick
    Still a Freak*
    Nashville, Tennessee
    Medicine Bow
    Rosalind (You Married the Wrong Guy)
    The Whole of the Moon
    In My Time on Earth

    Aye, but we agree the man could write some mad pretty lyrics.

    Some fave tracks.


    What unseen hand brought him face to face to face to face with
    All this and more. In a pagan place?


    Now if you're feelin' weary.
    If you've been alone too long.
    Maybe you've been suffering from a few too many, plans that have gone wrong.
    And you're trying to remember, how fine your life used to be.
    Running around banging your drum, like it's 1973.
    Well that was the river.
    This is the sea!


    You're asking what makes me sigh now
    What it is makes me shudder so
    Well I just FREEZE in the wind
    And I'm numb from the pummelling of the snow.


    By far my favourite Waterboys track. The lyrics are perfection.

    'Somebody left this whisky
    And the night is very young
    I've som'in to say and more to tell
    And the words will soon be spilling from my tongue'

    Yeah, his old 80s stuff is poor beauty started with 'This is the Sea' album although their debut 'The Waterboys' was already very special. Whereas you know, already in the 80s they underwent a change in sound, from first kinda new wave with slight folk tracks to actual british folk with legendary 'Fisherman's Blues' album until including 'Room To Roam' album (glorious album, too). In the 90s to power rock with few song exceptions in old coat. Back to the roots with 'Universal Hall', an excellent album, 2003. And so on, again with rock and then blues 'n' soul and even funky stuff nowadays. While aside to 'This is the Sea', 'Fisherman's Blues' and 'Universal Hall', especially the 'An Appointment with Mr. Yeats' album from 2011, are my absolute favourites, imo. all his other album stuff is great, too. The career contains just a lot musical development and experimentation, and a perfect one. Edit: Not to forget Scott's two excellent solo albums in the 90s.

    The Faery's Last Song, last track from 'An Appointsment with Mr. Yeats' album

    i'm especially also a fan of this album, because Scott engaged the supertalented Irish songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist Katie Kim for this record.
    Before the World Was Made


    And i never get tired to listen to "Long Strange Golden Road" from the album 'Modern Blues', 2014
    ... another live version found, 2018


    and this ... A Wild Holy Band (Long Strange Golden Road Demo)

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    without love

    There was a guy which she liked to see
    he gave her the escort
    there was a silent place in the forest
    where they both stayed
    she lay there and watched the stars
    her hair in the wet moss
    the guy was laying clumsy
    his hand on her lap

    he touched her
    seduced her without love
    he touched her
    seduced her without love


    a second guy came and took her away
    to the linen white and clean
    in this linen she thought
    I wanna be burried
    he kissed his skin with pleasure
    and was nearly shocked
    how she, so young, so hot,
    shivers and touches him

    he touched her
    seduced her without love
    he touched her
    seduced her without love

    A third and a fourth came
    then it didn't hurt no more
    the coldness creeped over
    her parting to her toe
    and when the fifth has gone away from her
    she was completely frozen
    the fiever never came back
    and her hair turned grey


    he touched her
    seduced her without love
    he touched her

    What a beautiful day to die
    The sun is burning through our skin
    Who says the truth is all a lie
    When the truth is running thin

    Clouds of hate, rolling in, and seals your fate

    When all the hope is gone
    You will pave the way for the children of the gray
    When you sold your soul to the man
    You'll lose the game to the children of the gray

    The course of destruction we mold
    The heritage we leave behind
    There is nothing left to claim
    Resources that we drained

    The toxic air you suck down your lungs will stay with you until the end
    Rainforest leveled to the ground, oceans like plastic ponds

    Troops of plague, marching in, and seals your fate

    When all the hope is gone
    You will pave the way for the children of the gray
    When you sold your soul to the man
    You'll lose the game to the children of the gray

    Troops of plague, marching in, and seals your fate

    And when all the hope is gone
    You will pave the way for the children of the gray
    When you sold your soul to the man
    You'll lose the game to the children of the gray

    What a beautiful day to die
    Children of the gray
    Clouds of hate rolling in
    Children of the gray
