Romantic Evening Sex All Themes. In that sense, Look to the Sky has a bit more in common with his work with the Pumpkins, and feels like he is finally owning his legacy as a '90s alt-rock pioneer. On Look to the Sky, Iha's songwriting celebrates an earnest, heart-on-his-sleeve quality, which is bolstered through appearances by other, similarly inclined artists, as musicians like Tinted Windows bandmate Adam Schlesinger, Television guitarist Tom Verlaine, and the Cardigans' Nina Persson add their talents to the album's late-afternoon, introspective vibe.
Ive just got this album and i am most impressed with the songs here. Every one is a gem and has its individuality to it. My fave has to be To Who Knows Where with its nice touch of flange and i think was the lead off single.
James has assembled a fine band here and it has a band feel about it more so than his debut which was also a gem, although more introspective and melancholy. This album builds on those acoustic textures of the debut but adds more variance.
There are some lovely splashes of keyboards and heavy guitars sprinkled throughout as do violins which make another welcome appearance on A String Of Words all sung in that distinctive low dry voice of his. Its always perplexed me how ex bandmate and Pumpkin Billy Corgan spoke lowly of James and D'arcy as musicians because here James shows just what a consummate musician and composer he is without the tyrannical control of BC at the helm and it works a treat.
