Track 9: Comfortably Unknown


For the final part of the album, I decided that I wanted it to be full of contrast.  I remember listening to albums from the late 90s and early 2000s, which left the listener constantly wondering what was going to come next.  For this track I decided to go for a raw live sound like the one I had achieved on ‘The Gutter’ using live guitars and drums.  I’ve imagined this track and ‘Engage’ being played live with a full orchestra and believe the results could be spectacular.  Do you think so too or is it just me?

The theme of the song is about the futility of arguing about the origins of the universe and our purpose in it.  Maybe instead of falling out over such arguments, we should learn to marvel at the wonders around us and not let the mysteries of the cosmos cause us anxiety and unrest.
