Tal Wilkenfeld is Killing Me

Recommended Posts

She's an awesome bass player with apparently a lovely voice and I love her playing behind Jeff Beck but I'm sorry to say that whole 5 minutes and 18 seconds did nothing for me whatsoever. It was like trying to watch telly and someone won't stop chatting to you. Know what I mean?

So much was going on but, it was for me, musically annoying. 

Each to their own I guess.

Sorry TW.

It has an oddly dissonant and 'ugly' sound that doesn't sit well with my ear. It's also quite a chaotic sounding piece. Not to my taste.

I like the song, it reminds me of Jeff Buckley, but I'm not a fan of her voice.

Maybe she could write the songs and get another singer into the band to sing them (like Pete Townsend does with Roger daltrey).

But she is a great bass player.

I know exactly what you mean. Too busy and nothing you can actually grab in it. Thing is, I would probably have liked it 40 years ago. But nowadays I like my rocknroll to be a bit more visceral. Maybe the ability to handle complexity diminishes with age.

Instrumentation aside it has a vaguely Soundgarden/Alice in chains or similar feel to it to me, a bit early 90s.

Agreed, I quite like it.

Don't like her vocals (trying too hard to be alanis morisette? ) and I couldn't hear much bass over the crap guitard.  Maybe she should stick with Jeff Beck.

Don't care for her folk warbler -come-Morrissette voice nor the guitar sound. She can play for sure but I've yet to hear any music she's played on that does owt for me, especially not the jazz rock stuff with Jeff Beck.  Cant say I hear AIC or Soundgarden here though

They are exactly the reasons why I love it. Although I wouldn't call it ugly of course.

I can't help thinking how amazing it would sound with Chris Cornell singing it 😞

Exactly the same feeling. Except the bass sound that i don't really like, even if it suits perfectly the song.

Just to be fair I've listened to it twice more to see if it's a grower but no. It's not ugly but it doesn't go anywhere. Then again that's something that can be said about most music especially of the common or garden verse chorus verse variety
