Son's of Anarchy Episode 8 review

This show keeps rolling along, and packing in the punches.

I love what the prospect did to attempt to earn his top rocker. Way funny. At least it came in handy later on in the show.

Hey did you hear Able got out of the "toaster"!

Jax & Tartar sittin in a tree. What they did was really F'n creepy.
It's like... "sleeping with the enemy" (in the room).
It's like necrophilia, "sleeping with the dead guy" (in the room).

Can you say freaking twisted?
All I could think was "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!"

On a lighter note: I can't get that theme song out of my head. I can't wait for it's release.

Below is some information on the theme song, posted from the SOA website.

The Sound:

Music for the show plays a crucial part in depicting the world of Samcro as well as the simplicity of life in a town like Charming. It must reflect both the authentic rebelliousness and freedom of the club lifestyle but also have playful Americana undertones.

The man responsible for capturing this is acclaimed producer/songwriter/musician Bob Thiele Jr., whose major task as theme song composer and co-music supervisor is to make the music as authentic as possible. He does this by drawing from a specific musical palette, using a great deal of guitar and accordion, keeping it simple as anything too orchestral or overly computer generated becomes distracting and can hinder instead of adding to the characters and their stories. This very notion is best captured in the show’s theme song “This Life.”

For the song, Bob teamed up with guitarist/songwriter/and all around badass Dave Kushner of the band Velvet Revolver, as well as famed musician Curtis Stigers (who sings it.) The three are in works to lay down a full recording of the song to be available soon. Further details to follow…

In many ways SOA is a contemporary western, a cowboy story complete with all the thrills and pangs that comes with it. Our cowboy, Jax, is isolated in his conflict over the club and his family. Thematically, it’s important to capture Jax’s confusion with a classic lonesome cowboy edge, but also show the tradition and excitement of the world…

Ride into this world

All alone

God takes your soul

You’re on your own.

The crow flies straight

A perfect line

On the devil’s back

Until you die.

Gotta look this life in the eye.

The combination of these elements truly reflects our characters lives: The good, the bad and the crow.
