After working with all engines running on my recent Alien Skin album P.O.P. POP, Rachel’s Coming Home is a gentle side-step that gives me time to catch my breath before the next major album release
I enjoy the same side-step a Depeche Mode show takes when Martin Gore moves to front of stage, his voice and piano only. He transforms his classic ballads into dark emotive highlights. Can’t say I achieve similar results, but I like the open sparseness of this performance approach.
Rachel’s Coming Home is a dark moment for me. I won’t elaborate but it’s a diary page torn and removed forever…
