Indeed, on multiple occasions he appears to contemplate defeat, or at least the inability to affect the kind of change he had, up to now, been so optimistic of. The use of this ancient language gives a certain gravity and timelessness to its warning.
Cat presents a post-apocalyptic vision of the world all battered and torn, a picture that is to this day still all too familiar. Indeed, it may only be a semantic point but there could be some significance in the fact that the dream of a healthy flourishing Earth is being located in a lost past rather than an obtainable future. Many of us will be able to identify with this idea; watching the chances of arriving at a healthier tomorrow for mankind fade with the inevitability of the purest sunset.
In an interview given after the release of the album Cat dismissed the negative visions that he was presenting. However, despite his reservations with regards to the battle for the fate of the external world, Cat still showed that his optimism would prevail in his internal battle.
He adopts a deeper and more gruff tone that will continue into the following albums. Cat is clearly of a romantic disposition and forges strong connections with his lovers.
She moves like and angel Sweet Scarlet - Cat Stevens - Catch Bull At Four (Vinyl seven evening stars Dance through the window Of her universal house Her voice a crystal echo Lies humming in your soul But these relationships were incomplete, flawed somehow and it would seem that the key factor was that he was yearning for the deepest of connections.
And on my life I swear My conscience will follow you forever If you meet me everywhere, Yes if you if you meet me everywhere However, the tale invites multiple interpretations. Perhaps the narrative is an inversion of the Christian story of the immaculate conception and that the child is a Jesus-like figure.
The central image of the star and moon that adorns the boy is maybe a little easier to interpret, though no less intriguing. If we take the star to be the sun then combined with the moon it would suggest a balancing of opposites; a reconciliation of dualities. Throughout his spiritual process Cat has been wrestling to bring harmony to his existence and retain a childlike wonder and appreciation of all things.
He expanded upon this notion in a Rolling Stone interview from the period. The three previous records featured cover designs that were drawn by Cat himself and that originated from his imagination; they were born of his internal reflections. As such, they illustrate a very personal and individualised sense of his spirituality at that time.
In the practices and teachings of Zen Buddhism he had found a sense of guidance that was worth honouring in this way. His personal journey was being, to an extent, nourished LP supported by an external doctrine. Indeed, where the previous three album covers were two-dimensional images, this new design introduced a third dimension. It acts almost as a window through the wall.
The metaphor of reflection is fairly straightforward to interpret but it follows that his sense of self is blurred and not yet fully defined. The portrait captures the charming smile and self-assurance of a man whose message has resonated in the hearts of millions and who is in touch with his profound spiritual momentum.
He had fame, critical acclaim, and wealth to an extent that even his most optimistic boyhood self would have struggled to imagine. Connect to Spotify. A new version of Last. Replace video.
