This week for Tuned In Tuesday, isn’t a music video like I have done before. This week I chose to tell you about a song you may or may not know. Marianas Trench’s latest studio album ‘Ever After’ is 12 songs all strung together with no breaks in between songs. The last song on the album, “No Place Like Home”, is easily one of the best songs off of the album.
It’s the longest song of the album at 6 minutes and 41 seconds. Like their previous album, “Masterpiece Theatre”, the last song sort of puts all of the songs together as one. It starts out with almost a minute of slow acapella singing, and then picks up different tempos throughout the song adding different elements as it goes along, including a harmonica.
I had the privilege to see this song played live in Fredericton, New Brunswick on the first stop of the Face The Music: With A Vengeance tour in late March, and let me tell you, it is just as amazing live, if not more so.
This song plays more to rock side of their sound than the other songs, especially the singles, off of the album, at the same time as showing off the vocal talent of the four members of the band.
All in all, it is one of the best songs on one of their best albums.
