  • Unfortunately, after about two minutes and ten seconds into the track the band makes an abrupt and awkward transition into a new section of the song which just does not have nearly as good a sound that the band had prior to this
  • Though I typically am a fan of contrasting sections, this contrast just isn’t done that well in my opinion

      Your Bruise is a song by Death Cab For Cutie which appears on their debut record, Something About Airplanes. Opening up with a repeating and simple guitar pattern, the song establishes a pretty brooding atmosphere which the vocals thankfully take advantage of with a vocal delivery that is both distant and fairly cynical sounding.

      After about a minute into the song, the instrumentation suddenly comes in to sound more personal, but the dark mood established by the


      beginning of the track thankfully remains.

      After the track goes through an instrumental section for a fair amount of time, the vocals return in the mix and continue on with a suitable vocal performance.

      Unfortunately, after about two minutes and ten seconds into the track the band makes an abrupt and awkward transition into a new section of the song which just does not have nearly as good a sound that the band had prior to this.

      Thankfully,


      • this section doesn’t go on for too long and the band soon returns the dark atmosphere of earlier.

        Unfortunately, I’ve spoken too soon and rather than continuing on with this darker atmosphere, the band once again goes into this lighter mood which clashes too strongly against what has already been established in the track.

        Though I typically am a fan of contrasting sections, this contrast just isn’t done that well in my opinion.

        Overall, I would say that Your

        Bruise could’ve ended up as a better track than what appeared on the record if the band had made some different decisions in terms of songwriting and chosen not to constantly be shifting into the lighter section of this song.

        Despite my displeasure with this decision, I still have to say that this is not a flaw big enough to completely stop my enjoyment of the track and I would still say that this is a solid song.
