When Will This Work?

I have totally lost sight of the sound and intention of this record. I mean it this time when I say that I'm going to move onto Song Two, and try to be a lot more free with it. This record wasn't supposed to be calculated and staged like Claye. Once again, I'm falling into old habits. It's hard to get out of the mindset I had on Claye, which was to make it sound like bizarre pop (not too bizarre looking back). I said from the start that I wanted this one to be simply beautiful. Not trying so hard. Just be sincere and heartfelt.
