Don't Open The Door To Strangers

by chrome3d

Acoustic guitar strumming, slow rhythm section, Steve sounds sleepy and deep. Piano starts and somewhere in the background organ weaves a Procol Harum-ish melancholic web. There is some Elton John-vibes too in here too, if I knew what Elton is all about. When everything feels complete the slide guitar starts to squeeze some extra emotion at 2:06. During the last lines when Steve sings ...tonight...tonight...the wiuu-wiuu-wiuu slide squeezes are just a tad too much but all in all it has some charm and I´m not tired to listen it again a couple of times. After all the chug chug of the album it´s a real conventional album closer to show the sensitive side of the band. The kinda song a band would end with their debut album and maybe get the lighters out at a gig. It feels oddly conventional in many ways. This is The Church after all.

During one game user Jesuskrishna made a joke that it was good that Steve never followed his advice of not opening the door to strangers and now we have "Just For You"! That was so hilarious.
