Right beforeyou ask, I havn't checked every single damien site to find out what it means but I thought you guys would have your own views...


What does the album name 'O' actually mean? or even what does it represent for you? I read a quot in the Observer I think saying it represented an orgasm... [img]smileys/smiley17.gif[/img]

I definitely have always agreed with that theory: nearly every song builds slowlyin intensitythe way any reeeaaalygood orgasm does.


I do think that just like most of damo's deceptively simplelyrics though there are so many levels of meaning to that title.Edited by: Spamlet

'does this album`s title suggest a perfect circle, an orgasm, or just the void that haunts even the deepest relationships?

all that and more in songs that, for all their quietness, leave a dark, lasting impression'



i think rolling stone summed it up pretty nicely [img]smileys/smiley4.gif[/img]

Hi Dylan,



Although I like the whole "orgasm" idea (In reality, not to mention as
an explanation for what "O" means), I heard Damien explain that it was
simply taken from the name of the main character O, in Pauline Reage's
sadomasochistic novel "Story of O".



arcus.......(quite fancying a big O actually [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img])

O is the ongoing circle of things in life.
O is a CD, cause it looks like one and goes round and round.
O is the character from the novel The Story of O.
Ois the wheels of Damien's bike as the name came to him.
O stands for orgasm.
O is a vagina.
O is a mouth.
O is a blank smiley face[img]smileys/smiley3.gif[/img]
O is zero, nothing.
O is the earth.

O is the expression of surprise when Damien realised he should call his album O [img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]

maybe not that absurd, at the risk of sounding like i'm full of sh*t, a circle is used to represent a vagina in many ancient cultures.


It's a symbol of life and desire and probably many other things. It wouldn't be totally out of place.
