11th Dimension and September 11th
11th Dimension and September 11thPosted by Max Fischer on September 23, 2009 at 5:27 pm
Hey.. I have something interesting to run by you all. I found something and I am not sure what to make of it. Ok.. I will list them and see what you guys think..
- Is it just me or do you think 11th Dimension sounds like Julian could be talking about the terrorist attacks on sept 11th? "America, I looked up to you but you thought I would look the other way" "Forgive them even if they are not sorry" "if you believe in this world don't burn it please" "complicated mammals on the wings of robots"
- The release date for the album was announced on sept 11th

[b]September 11th[/b], 2009
Julian’s debut album, PHRAZES FOR THE YOUNG will be released in the UK on October 19 and in the US on October 20th. You’ll be able to pre-order the record here…details will be posted before the release.[/quote]
- 11th dimension was released close to Sept 11th
- look at the art for 11th dimension.. does this remind you of anything? Especially considering the above info? [img]http://www.juliancasablancas.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/11thDIMENSION.SINGLE.COVER.sm2.jpg[/img]
And then the track listing - I am wondering if the whole album might be about 9-11 to some degree. But it's confusing because like in 11th dimension it seems Julian might be mixing other things in as well.
1. Out of the Blue (when I think of 9-11 I thnk of those planes comin out of the blue sky)
2. River of Brake Lights (cars leaving the city)
3. 4 Chords of the Apocalypse (x marks) (terrorism - apocalypse)
4. 11th Dimension
5. Ludlow St. (there was a Suzanne Vega song about 9-11 with the exact same title)
6. Glass (glass from buildings?)
7. Left & Right In the Dark
It seems really odd to me that Julian would title a song Ludlow street knowing Vega did one.. AND announcing the release date for the album on 9-11....
Now,.. I hope no one jumps to conclusions. I am just stating the possibility so we can all look for other clues. But I don't want to taint how the CD is viewed.
But when I first heard 11th dimension I immediately thought of 9-11 and all the fall out from it. Especially the "forgive them even if they are not sorry" line and the part about America.
