Like a lot of people IÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢m sure, I had huge expectations, not to mention huge excitement for the newest Copeland record Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã‹Å“Eat, Sleep, RepeatÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢. When excitement and expectations run so high it then becomes very easy to be let down, even by the slightest things. Let me be one of the first to say that this record is different than the previous two, yet it does not disappoint someone looking for music with passion behind it.
The album as a whole has almost a creepy/lonely feeling which the first song Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”WhereÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s my headÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? sets the stage for. The song, which is a little over 2 minutes, never fully breaks into the full band but rather at its peak itÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s simply vocals with a lot of background drums/noise. Musically Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Careful nowÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? seems like it could have been a track off Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã‹Å“In MotionÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢, however vocally it strays from the traditional Copeland sound.
Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Love affairÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? is the song I can see being that song that everyone loves, whether they admit it or not. The song, which is one of the longest on the record, starts slow and then continually builds into this epic love song which then musically changes to be piano and believe it or not, trumpet lead. Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”IÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢m safer on an airplaneÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? and Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”The last time he saw DorieÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? are two of the slower, mellower tracks (comparatively speaking).
Besides Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Love affairÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬?, my personal favorites are the last two tracks on this beautiful record. Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”IÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢m a sucker for a kind wordÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? is one of the more upbeat songs, probably a song that will stick out with its very predominant melody in the chorus and verses. The record concludes with a song you probably would not expect to hear on the record. The song starts with Elton John like piano, which then is later accompanied by an amazing strings section. I didnÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢t know what I was expecting with this latest release from the guys of Copeland, but needless to say they have come through in a big way. Please go buy this record on October 31st.
