My review title is a no doubt barely adequate attempt to transcribe John's "speaking in tongues" signing on the chorus of this song. To me, this song is a distant cousin of "Strawberry Fields Forever" in that it evokes a memory from childhood of discovering something both magical and profoundly emotional. They symphony playing along with John sounds way more soulful than anything ELO ever managed. "#9 Dream" is one of those moments where John's artsy side yields something absolutely lovely, as opposed to, say, his artsy side yielding something like "Two Virgins". Maybe "ama bakawa pussy pussy" was John having a prophetic vision of Pussy Riot and cheering them on?
If you're super into coozies this is the one for you! This is very well made. The steel is study, no scratches or nicks. You have to screw off the top piece to get a can or bottle inside. I thought it could have come off a little smoother, it's a little scratchy when you're screwing it, and slightly annoying to have to remove it each time, but the other qualities of this product probably make up for that inconvenience. Once the sticker is removed you could put vinyl lettering on this a really personalize it for yourself or would make a great gift. I was concerned that it would be top heavy becuase the can does not sit all the way down in the holder, like the bottle does. I did lots of testing trying to get this to tip over and was very please to see that it does not go easy! This is very study and unless it really gets hit or set on an uneven surface, there is very little chance it will spill your drink. It keeps your drink nice and cold longer than a normal coozie.. if that is needed and doesn't sweat like an uncovered can might. Over all this is a great product. I think it's quite over priced at full price, but if you are one that uses coozies often then this might be a great fit for you.
