Fantastic to hear the boys on Chris Evans breakfast show this morning. My favourite singer in the world singing my second favourite's song... (Purple Rain) Loving the new album and looking forward to seeing you again in York in November x

ben sand, Canada

geez!! @Kevin of etas-unis...You're a fan? This album is spectacular, like the Yeats one before it. People who aren't "Water People" like myself have said the same. Questioning a great artists' direction in his music is ridiculous.

Big Man,
Long Strange Golden Road is the best song in the rock idiom by anyone,anywhere in the last 10 years-you've always had a gift-but this is just extraordinary-you're wired into something the rest of us will never see.

WHAT A GREAT NEW ALBUM!!!! I love it! Mike, please come to Nashville, TN for a show, I see that the album was recorded here and it sounds fantastic! I saw you live the last time you were in town, 10 or so years ago. Would love to see this new music! Come to Nashville!!!!! We love you!!!!

Kevin, Etas-Unis

Several items...will be at the Roundhouse gig in London, and have just listened to the entirety of 'Modern Blues'. Sadly, it did not inspire me. Very poignant lyrics, well played instrumentally, but an unwelcome distance and passionless offering. Specifically, the glaring absence of Maestro Wickham on the CD is both puzzling and cruelly disappointing.
I am hoping that this mystifying flaw may be rectified in performance? An assemblage of the ~best~ session players is just that. The core of the Waterboys 'sound/vision' is the magical subversion and chemistry to be found with Scott and Wickham in full flight!

Hello John,

Not this time around. We hope Australia will be a regular touring stop for The Waterboys from now on and the opportunity to play Brisbane will arrive again.

Love,
Paige

Just got my "Modern Blues" in the mail from the UK. It was -35 C here this morning so the album has certainly cheered me up. Wonderful songs and musicianship. Only complain, if I can call it that, is "Long Strange Golden Road" just seems to be warming up when it is over. Great sound quality as if they played it live in the studio in a single take.

Traveled all the way to Drogheda to see the Waterboys live on the Fisherman's Blues 25th Anniversary tour. I really look forward to the tour stopping in Canada. Edmonton or Vancouver would be closest for me! Thank you for keeping the website and to Mike for continuing yo make great music.

Ted & Nate, CT, USA

Received the new CD here in the northeast USA a few days ago, Gary, before the mammoth storm. Young Nate, age 5 years, was rocking out all weekend to his new favorite CD! I Can See Elvis sounds a bit different than when heard live 16 months ago, excellent still. I see it came it at 14 on the UK charts - well earned!

All my warm compliments for the new cd Modern Blues!
The cd-sleeve looks great, wish it would be a record-sleeve (bigger!) and "Nearest thing to hip" sounds refined!

Lennart, Germany

Hi everybody,

I have two questions. Hope that you can help.

Are there any plans to play in North Germany (Hamburg) this tour?
I've seen you 2007 in Hamburg and loved it.

And is there any chance to get chords for some of your Music? Especially for Let It Happen; and ' Is She Conscious? I tried to figure it out by myself, but it just didn't work.

Best regards
Lennart

Hello Lennart,

We don't have details quite yet, but there will be more European dates announced as they are confirmed, so please stay tuned.

I don't have the chords handy for Let It Happen (Is there any kind fan out there who has this one down willing to help?)

But the chords for Is She Conscious? appear below.

Lots of love,
Paige


IS SHE CONSCIOUS?

Dear Mike
Have spent a lot of time online over the past six months listening to (and loving) the live versions of 'Still A Freak' and 'I Can See Elvis' (which built up high anticipation of the new album). Finally listened to my copy of Modern Blues' today and it is outstanding! Had an ear-to-ear grin listening to 'Long Strange Golden Road', 'Nearest Thing To Hip' 'Destinies Entwined' and 'November Tale'. I think Still A Freak' and 'I Can See Elvis' might be my new favourite Waterboys songs. Your lyrics, your singing and the brilliant musicianship of the band are uplifting and inspiring in equal measure. You should put a new album out every January to give us all a blast of sunshine to lift us out of the cold and dark. Congratulations on a superb collection of songs!!!

Long Strange Golden Road lasts 10.23 minutes on your new album. That is far too short! Brother Paul is amazing! Anyway, congratulations on a amazing new album.
