^ Noone is going to "let you have it". We already explained that different opinions are allowed. People like different things, it's that simple.
And you are not the first one who mentioned that the lyrics are childish.
He said that Home sweet home is about someone having cancer and said that in the past few years both him and Peter had lost loved ones to cancer.
I was very hesitant about this project. Especially after I found out that Till would be writing and singing in English. Very few people write as well in another language that isn't their own and I don't think Peter is any better at it if he thought these lyrics are brilliant. I also hesitated when I realised that Peter will play all the instruments and record it in his studio. It really felt like a rushed project. Sometimes I felt like cancelling my order.
But I thought the album was a positive surprise. I am glad I ordered the Super Deluxe Edition. I love the book, it's gorgeous and I like how they made it.
Now that I have listened to the album I don't think it feels at all as rushed as I feared and in most songs I don't even think of Till's accent. It didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. I still find the beginning of Praise Abort a bit hard to listen to... it's not a favourite, but I love the song and video.
I don't think it's a pure party album either, but a good mix of more serious and quite beautiful songs. And some are just plain or bad, but I seldom like all songs on any album.
I never expected this to be as good as
, but it's a lot better than I had expected.
Skills in pills - I don't like the music in the very beginning of the song or the spoken lyrics at the very end, but other than that I think it's a good song.
Ladyboy - this is a bad song. Both the lyrics and and the music is very plain and boring. It's not daring or shocking or anything. He could have done something much more naughty and clever with this one.
Children of the sun - my absolute favourite on the album.
I love this song, music and lyrics. It's dark, sad and cruel and to me it's just like a
song in English. "We have to go, the sky is in flames"
, I think that is pretty beautiful imagery.
Yukon and That's my heart - other ones I really like. I think they are good songs, with good lyrics. Yukon is not super deep and I'm not super fond of the chorus in That's my heart either, but to me they are great songs that I listen to a lot. Fish on is a great song too, but a bit more childish. I love the chorus though.
Fat - I don't think it's that disgusting at all, I think it's pretty funny. Heirate mich is a far more disgusting song, but I still love it. I love the heavy sound of the song, to me this one, Golden shower and Parise Abort are more party songs. I have no problem with the imagery in Golden shower either.
I think it's a pretty good song. It's more how he sings it rather than what he says that makes it a bit funny. He kind of barks the chorus at you.
Cowboy and Home sweet home i haven't really listened to yet. I read the text to Cowboy and thought they were too childish and unintelligent.
The sound of the music was okay, but... I don't think I'll be listening much to this one. Home sweet home makes me a bit uncomfortable. Illness eating you from inside is a bit too close to my own experience. I haven't even read the lyrics properly and I don't know if I want to.
It is a lot about sex in every way you can have it, you can tell that it's not as easy to write deep lyrics and I'm not so fond of the general American old western theme in a few songs, that's not a genre I like, but still, it's an pretty good album that I listen to now and then, some songs more than others.
I do not agree that Peter's music is great. I think a lot of it is very plain and it has a very... Swedish taste. I'm not as impressed as people in the comments that I have read.
People can agree or disagree with me, I'm not going to try and convince anyone to like it, but I do. If that means I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed or just a little more tasteless than most people, I'm not too worried about that.
It would be interesting to read what other people think of specific songs.
