WAKE Choruses From Under The Rock, 11 March 2006
Author: SirEmu from Sweden

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

For months I've noticed no one have said anything about this flick. Originally the sound is very plain , as i saw a interview with Andrew telling about this gig, and we got a peek at the concert..... it was No Time To Cry , no effects at all on bass or guitar , but on the official video there is loads of Flanger on bass , and hell of a good sound on the guitar. So I reckon , they played the gig and "fixed" the sound after wards . I watched this "Promo" from Eldritch that was RAW , and then seeing/listening to the DVD , its such a big difference. Some of you may have seen the very short photo from Eldritch , in beard , saying, "heres a little thing from our last gig" then presenting "No time to cry" , and it blasted me as the guitar and bass sounded like there where no effects on it at all. Afterward i realize that they've added the effects AFTER the concert during the making of the video. Seeing WAKE is ultimatum , chorus , flanger , and delays.... I wonder if the performance was not good to Eldritch to release , so he put on the effect he loved , and that we love.. , attacks on guitar and loads of effects on the Bass.

And I'm amazed that no one have told this before , about the original sound , and the altered I give this video a 10+ , if I could. To something different: Andrew got some stuff to do , some fan wishes , He could at least put out a single or 2 , like We are the same , but looks like its just live gigs that interest him , maybe he got some awkward deal on record-companies that holds him back to release stuff , anyways, I have sisters from the -80s and i have them in my heart , they are the best , even if I'm 32 of age and listen to Madonna... Hmmmmm , now it says that it is from 1987 that is completely wrong!

Thanks , I hope you will get some point of view :)

PS. sorry for the spelling
