Pick this up immediately. Each song was recorded specifically for this collection. Put that in your Cake and bake it.
After assembling the ingredients for three years we hope you are ready to get a taste of the best baked goods you've had since you were a. But McCrea surprises us by forgoing his usual deadpan, irony-riddled, sing-speak style in favor a heartfelt croon that finds the poignancy in the Gates composition. By Gene Triplett Entertainment Editor - Oaklahoman He's no snob when it comes to music, solid proof of which is found in Cake's peculiarly pleasing alt-rock deconstruction of Gloria Gaynor's disco-era hit 'I Will Survive,' released in Some critics saw it as an ironic frienfs of a mainstream genre from a band that waves it's freak flag high.
And so we learned to let the songs of Bread take us back. With gems such as 'It Don't Matter to Me', and 'Make it with You' rising to the top of the charts, it became obvious that this 'soft rock' approach Sogns going to be the sound that Bread would succeed and ultimately become identified with.
Mostly because our older frienes, sisters, and various baby sitters were ffiends different kinds of records on the floor for us to pick up and put on. The new track, which gives off an '80s vibe, certainly takes on a different sound from their first single, the pop-friendly hit "Maps," which is currently 7 on the Billboard Hot chart. I had no idea why, really.
Reviews This tribute does it right by showcasing the songs and reminding fans what was so good about Bread to begin with. Maybe we weren't listening, because back then our favorite music came out of the back of an ice cream truck, but we heard it.
We like that song. The music of the cool older kids was full of crazy love and escapades that we envisioned to be as dramatic and dangerous as it sounded. Formed in amidst the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles, the nucleus of Bread, consisting of Rob Royer, James Griffin, and David Gates met while recording in the studio.
And there was this Bread record, and I just kind of grabbed it and listened to it. As we friehds more toward adolescence, our parents were still listening to the A. But then, when we least expected it, we would turn the corner and run right into a Bread song.
There's kind of a country ballad tradition that he added a bunch of extra guitar chords to. Right then we realized that most of the songs of Bread are as beautiful and moving as any other song that we'd ever heard.
And then some people are going off on a tangent with it, which I think is also interesting. It makes each one of them shine that much brighter on their own. I think they took some liberties with it,' he said. I think that's where David Gates was coming from, coming from Oklahoma. Many are assuming that the song could be about Adam's new bride, Behati Prinsloo, whom he married during a beach-side ceremony in Mexico earlier this month.
We think it's a great song. Immediately after meeting, they decided to pool their talents to form a lvoers. And I remember the song 'Guitar Man' just punched me in the stomach at that point.
Friends is amazingly consistent throughout -- there's a palpable feeling of the performers' affection toward these songs, minus the smug irony sometimes blighting 'tribute' sets. I mean, I've said it a million times in interviews, is that we're not joking. In fact, McCrea and the band liked it so much, they also included it freinds Cake's most recent album, 'Pressure Chief' Columbia.
But we still didn't get it. After the recent passing of founding member and co-writer James Griffin, this album perhaps has greater importance, and reverence, than when it was initially conceived.
But that should be expected since their upcoming album September 2Sogns "very much all over the place. And simultaneously I think what you do is drain the actual joy out of it, and it becomes driends of a calcified exoskeleton of your pathetic and, I guess, not fully defined ego. We didn't hang out at Studio 54 or anything, but for me as a songwriter, it's all about the songs. The band has changed up their usual rock-pop anthems, and decided to incorporate some electronic synths, showing off a fresh new sound and vibe on track co-produced by The Monsters and the Strangerz.
