Agreed. Everyone acts like Carnival is the second coming. I just don't get it. It's okay, but I FAR prefer her bubbly, pop gems on BV.

Totally agree, Red Sun would be perfect with full FM. And listening to On with the Show breaks my heart now.
I also am a fan of SYW, most of the songs anyway.
Oh what could have been!!!

Default Syw

I hope history is kinder to SYW. I'd agree that it was the album that fit them at the time, their voices, their usual themes. Most of it is pretty great and I don't think an album coming from them now would be as good. There are SYW songs that could easily be jettisoned forever (Murrow/Silver Girl to name but two!), but it was a rather strong effort in the end. I wish they'd rotated some of the songs on that tour so more would've got live takes, but I'm glad I got to hear Destiny Rules before it was dropped. I skipped the BuckVie tour because I couldn't justify the expense when Christine's voice was getting dodgy...but I also don't think I missed much considering they were all on YouTube afterwards. Hoping for more music, but I'll always enjoy what we've got so far. BuckVie is a nice treat that I didn't expect but can pull off the shelf every once in a while or merge into a playlist with other newer things.

it's the chorus. gotta say I hate the intro. And really it's I'm So Afraid redux in most of it.....but that chorus, and then the ending.

Carnival Begin is my favorite from this album. The ending is awesome. The song has a hypnotic feel to me. When she sings about 'a new merry go round' I think of 'your mood is like a circus wheel' (even if it's not a direct reference). The line 'summer turned into fall' reminds me of Stevie's Nightbird 'and the summer became the fall'.

Carnival Begin gives me chills from the beginning to the end of the song. It is now one of my favorite Christine songs. Itís my favorite on BuckVie and I was disappointed she did not do it live. I love Too Far Gone and Red Sun too and it was great to hear those live.
