Danny Elfman's Second Solo Album

1 Share
It slipped under my radar, but last month Danny Elfman put out an album, Big Mess. [Wikipedia] It's industrial/grunge rock (includes 2/5 of NIN!) with an orchestral grounding. Hints of minimalism, triple dueling guitars, and a seething cauldron of hate and anger about Trump and 2020. Enjoy! Disk One: Sorry [video, behind the scenes], True [video], In Time, Everybody Loves You, Dance With The Lemurs, Serious Ground, Choose Your Side, We Belong

Disk Two: Happy* [video], Just A Human, Devil Take Away, Love In The Time Of COVID [video], Native Intelligence, Better Times, Cruel Compensation, Kick Me [video], Get Over It, Insects** [video]

Also available as a full album. [1h12m]

*Long ago Danny Elfman wrote another song, Happy. This is not that song.

“Wherever there is a phonograph the musical instrument is displaced. The time is coming when no one will be ready to submit himself to the ennobling discipline of learning music. Everyone will have their ready-made or ready-pirated music in their cupboards.”

— John Philip Sousa, New York Morning Telegraph, June 12, 1906

I do love old quotes of "person yelling against technological change".
