MESSIAH

Recommended Posts

hmmm not what i was expecting from reading peoples comments. it's more upbeat than i thought. i was thinking it was more dramatic than this!

M's voice - as usual all over this record - is perfection.

You're all going to think this is so fucking random but parts of this song remind me of the tango song from True Lies :dead:

Had to get used to the upbeat parts after I heard the demo and I still have a few issues with the beat, but of course it's a gorgeous song.

However, I wonder why her voice sounds so distorted in some parts, for example when she starts the chorus with "I light a candle...". The mastering is quite bad. :(

Oh, I LOVE Messiah. I fell in love with it when I heard the demo but the final version is even better. Certain parts of it remind me of Falling Free.

Masterpiece

It is a fucking Masterpiece. Has a lot of potential for some theatrics.

This is one of the RH songs that I had to listen to the leak. Amazing vocals. And those strings and buildup at the end. Classic already for me.

It's no Frozen of which I was lead to believe that it was on par with but I've only listened once so far. Maybe I'll be hit with the full force of it after a few listens.

same here

Love this song, made me cry when first listened to the demo.

Could be an amazing soundtrack song to major movie like Hunger games

For me this is up there with her best ballads. Her voice is gorgeous and she's singing so passionately. Sometimes this song makes me wanna cry and I don't even know why...lol.

My favorite song from the album!

That being said if she performs it on tour I'd love for it to have a longer orchestra intro & outro

All versions of Messiah are great. It translates really well in any form - brilliant!

I have been listening all day and this song is just doing nothing for me! I want to like it, I'm trying. All of you love it so much. What am I missing?

I don't even know how it goes...

I much prefer Joan of Arc, HeartBreakCity and Ghosttown.

Kurt, same here. The ballads on this album are all knocking my socks off.

Don't worry Carly. Even if you don't love it, it does not matter. So many great songs and we all have different major loves with songs.

This song is probably my least-favourite song on the album. It's lyrically great and the melody is quite intriguing but it just won't click for me. I probably expected too much from it. Anyway it's a great song and it deserves it's spot on the album but I just don't like it that much.

The line "don't wanna get to the end of my days saying I wasn't amazed"... did she use that before somewhere? it's so familiar.

I'm with you on this one Carly, it feels very theatrical, quite put on, which when you put it next to the other tracks you listed just makes it feel hollow. JOA, HBC and Ghosttown are all incredibly personal, Messiah feels like a character.
