Dark Age Of Reason:
The follow up companion to "Heartache Is A Four Letter Word" is a five track EP comprised of the darker, more brooding compositions written by Schneider. These songs were fleshed out with the help of his wife Elizabeth and mandolinist Mark Connolly. "Take Aim," the first track on "Dark Age Of Reason," was actually written on the same day as "Heartache Is A Four Letter Word," and speaks from a different part of Schneider's writing.
These two EPs are meant to be looked upon as one complete work. They showcase the full spectrum of Aquariums' material from the softer finger-picking folk to what Schneider refers to as the brooding Noir-Folk compositions. While both "Heartache" and "Dark Age" stand alone as complete works, together they give a more complete picture of the emotion and content driving Schneider's writing.
In much the same way as it's companion piece, the performances on "Dark Age Of Reason" have been left complete and unedited to preserve the spirit of the take. At least philosophically this sets these two EPs apart from most modern recordings that are relentlessly deprived of all life through "comping" and the desire to make everything perfect. We live in an imperfect world and part of what it is to be human is to err.
