John Frusciante - Lever Pulled Album: Curtains (2005)
Curtains is the seventh solo album by John Frusciante released on February 1, 2005 through Record Collection.The last album in the six-in-six series was almost two months late due to a printing mistake, yet absolutely worth the wait. John's voice is better than ever and on some songs, such as Control and Ascension, he's literally playing with his wide vocal range and, through crystal-clear singing, once again, portraying the nude of his own soul; singing and strumming the cords from the living room for of his Los Angeles home, backed up by his friends Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Carla Azar and Ken Wild. The emotions and voice are echoing after having hit the glass and the walls and are channeled through the acoustic guitars, electric guitar overlays and even a melodica solo at the end of A Name, following the last sung lines starting with words from a children's game. On Lever Pulled, yet another song that resembles a poem from the later XIX century romanticism era, it sounds as if the notes escaped, tripped and broke against the floor. There are verses which could associate to Prometheus and Noah; yet the most of it is pure Frusciante, the raw flesh just torn off a poet's heart. Casual listeners are most likely to say that John resembles Cat Stevens on this album.

You're the feeling of hurting More is what I'm asking for Little lies cross overboard Wait for the crying Love to aim at besides Lever pulled Go where you are, little pond Never be seen, by your saw We'll work it out
Now the feelings are right where you saw Forever is right where we were Never be clean Lever pulled Be where you are
