Funny that you'd pick "White Satin" as an example of one of The Moodies' best melodies- I think it's one of their least creative songs melodically. What saves it are the vox and the mellotron line. But I guess John agrees w/ you?
You mistitled it but props for mentioning "The Golden Eel". Always been one of my favorites on the album but nobody mentions it for some reason.
"I don't know how people can listen to rap music and be able to determine the lyrics of what they are rapping in particular when they are rapping quickly without referring to the lyrics sheet but that's probably my Central Auditory Processing disorder speaking"
Are you saying this is the case on the Deltron album? Because I've always considered Del one of the easiest rappers to understand the lyrics of- he never flows all that quickly and seems to always enunciate pretty clearly. So yeah, probably your CAPD homie.
