This Is the Sea is the third The Waterboys album, and the last of their "Big Music" albums. Considered by critics to be the finest album of their early rock-oriented sound, described as "epic" and "a defining moment", it was the first Waterboys album to enter the United Kingdom charts, peaking at number 37. Steve Wickham makes his Waterboys recording debut playing violin on 'The Pan Within' and subsequently joined the band, appearing on the video of "The Whole of the Moon".
Now if you're feelin' weary If you've been alone too long Maybe you've been suffering from A few too many Plans that have gone wrong And you're trying to remember How fine your life used to be Running around banging your drum Like it's 1973 Well that was the river This is the sea! Wooo! Now you say you've got trouble You say you've got pain You say've got nothing left to believe in Nothing to hold on to Nothing to trust Nothing but chains You've been scouring your conscience Raking through your memories Scouring your conscience Raking through . .
On This Is The Sea, the album’s titular track, he weaves a story about the fickle transference of good fortune, the way the world decides when you can be autonomous and when you get decided upon. The way he sings it, it sounds like a sermon, its verses collecting all the fears of a sceptic and sending them uselessly to the sky. It’s a narrative that needs encouraging, moving from the facts a person knows ( You wanna turn your back, on your soulless days ) to those that need unlocking ( once you were tethered, now you are free ).
When I made the first Waterboys album – which began as demos – I would try playing two 12 string rhythm guitars," he recalls. This Is The Sea is too in love with open spaces to allow for any sense of boundaries. Instead it brings walls tumbling down, sending light flooding across an often mythical landscape, conjuring spirits, calling out to a universal force. It's fantastic: for its exuberance, its sentiments, its poetry and its ambition.
I have listened to "This is the Sea" over and over because I thought I needed to understand what it meant. Mike Scott's big music is at its biggest and best on this album. After this he went Celtic with "Fisherman's Blues", and I didn't quite go along for that ride.
The This Is The Sea album is peppered with these sounds, played by the group's keyboard player Karl Wallinger, but they're most prominent on "The Whole Of The Moon. It came full circle when Prince performed the song at shows in 2014 and 2015.
