Subject: RE: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance
I reckon you like declamatory, bombastic songs like AIG or you don't. For my two pennorth it's like being hit repeatedly over the head by - I almost said a pub folk singer.

Whither allusion? Where subtlety and the unexpected cut of a lyric, a Hard Rain or a Srange Fruit? The sentiment is fine, the execution overbearing. I expect SoH know their audience.
