Keep everything out of sight
In 2008 Patrick Jones, ie Nicky Wire’s poet/playwright brother, released the play Revelation which is about domestic abuse from a male victim’s point of view. He had also chosen (at least) three songs to soundtrack the play, two of which came from his handy musician connection James.
Shut the Door is a sub-standard James solo acoustic moment and from its understated and rather monotonous nature it’s pretty clear to hear it’s meant to soundtrack something. It also suffers from that same thing as it’s never really particularly interesting musically; goes into the head from one ear and out of the other in an instant. What raises it a bit higher in intrigue scales is the emotionless yet highly rhythmic vocal melody that bobs along with the guitar picking in an almost metronomic way, giving the song a very distinguishably tense, edged-out mood. Which unfortunately isn’t enough to save it from being fairly forgettable.
