What I've been thinking about...
"Part of the Process"
I could obviously say wonderful things about this song… I wouldn’t upload it if I didn’t love it. But instead, here’s a sarcastic and oddly inspirational review from the liner notes of the cd:
Since 1997 was so full of depression and aggression, Skye decided the world needed some soothing and that she was gifted with the perfect voice. As a jazz flavoured singer with a beautiful baby boy, she had long sought the right combination of people to take herself to the stage and provide that special feeling an audience can feel when they see a professional act. In spite of this, she continued to work with Morcheeba, a bunch of Trip -Hop-branded, selfish fools with a nasty reputation for self destruction, who’s past curriculum included playing and recording with pub bands and producing versatile world class records. As their lyricist Paul Godfrey, ex-griddle chef from Kent, had said “It only takes the right song, the right voice and the right arrangement”. Floundering music enthusiasts became the team Skye did not envision, spiritual navigators in an age of trawling the net, led by Skye’s gorgeous tones, the Godfrey bros, together with their sound surgeon Pete Norris decided they had to lead more creative and fulfilling lives; eating out every night and partying till dawn was beginning to take it’s toll and they were getting bored. With this in mind they realised they needed new songs and a new record in the shops. They would have to teach themselves with music and the music could spread the feelings they were achieving in their state of the art recording studio. Ross, a reincarnated blues man, was all in favour of this, as he had been using his feelings for years before Morcheeba and was becoming disillusioned with being led astray. So what stands before you is “Big Calm”, an album of such incredible Beauty and Versatility that it defies all logic. With this, the band went out to buy some new clothes, as they had a cool image to keep up.

Crazy. Oh, and for those too young to know, liner notes are what you find inside the paper labels of physical CDs, tapes, records, etc.
