mp3: "Point of Personal Privilege" - Weller
It's apparent from the beginning of this newest Weller single that listeners are in for a moment that is tender and heartfelt, emotion overflowing at every turn. It's obvious in the way the track get its start - a greeting of hushed strings that give way to moments of noise bursts and then quiet confessions of avoidance. A choir of voices join in, adding a gut punch of feelings that overtake you, the tremendous backing of guitar and drums continually announcing their presence and then backing off. All the while, poignant, heartbreaking lyrical content plays out - "fighting off the urge to resent you/for all the things I lost when I met you." It's a perfect musical encapsulation of that moment when you realize your heart has been torn out and broken and you have no where to go but back to the beginning.
