Author Notes

"And when you breathe, you breathe for two..."
Another one from Belly's sophomore album King. When this album first came out, it received a poor reception from critics. Some think it was the album that ended the band as this one was more collaborative among the band members and with the poor reception, led Tanya to decide for a solo career since she did all the writing of the first album Star (that decision did not work out as she had hoped). However, two decades later, the critics have changed their tune, seeing now what fans saw all along.
Coincidentally, this was close to the the same time as Weezer's sophomore album Pinkerton released (less than a year apart), which received the same critical treatment (hated it then, love it now). Both albums hold dear places in my life and in my heart.
Seal my fate is a great upbeat number that rocks all the way through. From the lows of the beginning to the highs through to the end. Singing Tanya's songs are always fun, and this one is a little more friendly to stay in tune with her.

More Belly, I'm so excited!

Aw man, thanks for reminding me how good this is. I remember buying 'King' at the time and it never landed with me as much as 'Star', though I did see them tour with it. I never really went back to it either as the CD I bought was some stupid limited edition book-sized monstrosity which never fit on the CD shelves.
