Just this fucking space
If the idiotic remarks that This Is My Truth is just an Everything Must Go copycat (which is really quite an utterly insane point of view if you have ever even bothered to listen to the two albums) haven’t already been taken back by this point of the album, I’m Not Working should definitely clear it all up. It’s a song unlike anything on Everything Must Go. It’s a song unlike anything else in the band’s career. It’s the band at their most experimental in studio.
Trippy and floating in an endless amount of space, enslaved and enstrengthened by studio trickery. Little melody, little hooks, just endless amounts of vast infinity in the sound and a gigantic yet detached drum section. I’m Not Working was made for headphones. It’s the only way to completely appreciate the gigantic amount of space in the recording and the ethereal, translucent atmosphere it produces. The apathy and existential crisis -filled lyrics add it a paranoid, hopeless feel.
Stunningly captivating material.
