This track might have a quite common title, but the music is all but common. It shows intelligence and guts. The raw, freely performed, blues-rock like Baby shows a Tom Glenne that is one with the music. With an unconventional composition and powerful performance, the Tom Glenne 5.5 shows something creative, refreshing and unique. And the best thing? It’s not even Tom Glenne’s best.
Let Me Bite You On The Ass
You can hear a range of different influences on Let Me Bite You On The Ass, from jazz, to blues, to rock, from Steve Miller Band to Neil Young, to whatever you want to hear in it. The spunky and extremely well-performed song is one of the best efforts on this excellent CD. There’s variety in style, in tempo, in loudness, in intensity, and it all works together like a symphony. All the parts of the song are welded together to a whole and the Tom Glenne 5.5 deserves praise for this excellent musical arrangement.
God Invented The Weekend (Intro)
This is the first part, the intro that leads up to God Invented The Weekend and the rich, sometimes chaotic (in a positive way) sound prepares you for another spectacle song.
God Invented The Weekend
God Invented The Weekend is another excellent track with a good rhythm and very solidly performed. What I like best about this song is that it’s kind rough ’round the edges. Remember Bob Dylan in his best days, his vocals have that roughness around it. You can hear that same roughness in this song. Musically it’s not really Dylan, but more like Tom Waits maybe, who also displays that roughness in vocals and music. And everyone that you can compare to both these two greats in music is a great himself….
You Just Have To Learn To Live With Less
This song is catchy, especially for Tom Glenne’s standards. And I really like it. It sounds like it would make one hell of a live track as well. I can just hear a whole audience screaming along with “you just have to learn with less” in my head.
Get Used is another music spectacle with a lot of underlying influences. The keys that you hear throughout the songs are a really nice touch and they accentuate this song, that is uptempo and fun to listen to, and still shows the complexity that we expect from this excellent band.
Unfortunately we arrived at the end of the album. With a dubbed version of Baby, the circle is full. The feel of the song is a bit different, and I still haven’t made up my mind which version I like better.
“White Soul” is a very good statement for a band that knows what they can do. The smart and clever compositions with the raw, rough, free spirited music shows not only talent, but also passion and intelligence. the Tom Glenne 5.5 is a band that might not be known by the masses, but the ones that do know them will not forget them. “White Soul” is another lasting imprint of their talent.
