any version of this song is going to be powerful to some degree, but in all reality, the power in the album recording comes form its sheer simplicity, both musically and lyrically. This arrangement, though definitely beautiful, is too complicated for such a simple song, making it seem lacking in the lyrics department, when really, thats not the case at all.
still, i commend their taste in song, though honestly, youd be hard presses to find someone who wasnt affected in some way by clarity.
Yeah, it is one of the best albums in the universe.
