ahem, you seem to now as much as I do [img]smileys/smiley4.gif[/img] But I think it is safe to assume that Prayer Boat as it was is no more. If you listen to Oceanic Feeling and Polichinelle there is already a world of difference between the sound, and I think that was mostly Emmett's decision to change the course. And the gigs he has played in the past 4 years (at least in Holland) have either been solo or with different musicians than the ones on the record (such as the danish jazz musicians you can see on the fabchannel recording) And besides, the new forthcoming cd is going to be a solo record, but I don't think this means it's going to sound drastically different from Polichinelle.

They never broke up officially, but for all practical purposes they broke upyears ago. They didn't find commercial sucess and some started families and with that were no longer available for touring outside of Ireland, though Emmett's brother originally said he'd still be willing to play within Ireland. But he fell by the wayside, too.


That's why Emmett used the Danish and Swedish musicians for a while. They are not "The Prayer Boat" and they no longer play together, now that Emmett is back in Dublin. He used them for his new album, but that album is an Emmett Tinley solo debut.Edited by: Angela

No, it's pretty much in the same vein. And it's very beautiful from what I heard.

The seven year gap between Oceanic Feeling and Polichinelle might have something to do with the sound change aswell [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

Officially the last Prayer Boat gig was December 11 1999/2000 in the Paradiso, Amsterdam. Emmett signed a solo deal with Atlantic Records around September 2001. Other events at that time conspired against Emmett's album.

what is 'oceanic feeling' like? better/worse/something in between/hello/good evening?

Loveless 06-18-2004 01:02 AM


It's a beautiful album to listen to. The full band features more than on Polichinelle. There's great use of instruments, melody, strong lyrics and Emmett's ever soulful voice.

I get a great feeling of optimism when I listen to it. It's very uplifting to me anyway. In Freud's book, "Civilization and its Discontents" he described the 'oceanic feeling' as a sensation of 'eternity,' a feeling of something limitless, unbounded or 'oceanic.' This feeling he believed was the source of religious energy.

"Protest songs and rebirth / Are in and out of fashion / As if fashion created the earth"
- Upside Down

A lot of people have Polichinelle as their favourite album but I seem to gravitate towards Oceanic Feeling more often. Whereas their second release grabs your still-beating heart and throws it to the floor in despair, their debut is like a warm comforting arm around your shoulder.

Oh, and it's impossibly hard to find.

It has some up-tempo songs like 'Stopping The World', 'Don't Make Me Breath You In' and 'Upside Down' and there are some songs like 'Out Of Mind', 'Still Only One' and the epic 'Mercy' that just wander off to a different space and find their way home through some skillful navigation from the helm of the Prayer Boat. The gentle 'Millionaire Hero' and 'Hunger For The Beautiful' join the gaps tripping along on their own good vibes and positivity.

If you're looking for contemporary comparisons you could site the influence maybe of R.E.M. circa Green era, the Blue Nile or closer to home perhaps Van Morrison.


"We walk in Autumn's temple, her church of gold and crystal air, her beauty makes me small, It touches me inside, it touches you inside, I know you feel it too by these invisible lines, that tie me to you"
- Hunger For The Beautiful

oh wow, thx for that thorough describtion, loveless. now i really want to find that album!
