Faceless Sense Of Void

Generic Ratings: 1: Crap. 2: Ok. 3. Good. 4. Great

The only interesting thing to say about this one (which anyone reading this may already know) is that this is essentially an early version of Love’s Sweet Exile – a song which would appear on the band’s first album. Being a much earlier live version, this of course has all the weird charm of those other early tracks. It has a faux-epic opening similar to a later version of Spectators Of Suicide, but once the verses start it moves at a ridiculous breakneck pace with James screaming the lyrics at Rap God pace. I’m not a big fan of Love’s Sweet Exile and I think that if this was cleaned up, or had been recorded in a studio with proper production I would prefer this to what it would later become.

    Great post 🙂 I will admit that I only listened to the version that was on their Generation Terrorists album and I read on wikipedia that James Dean Bradfield hated that version. While the song has its moments, it is without a doubt too uneven as you said. Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
