Introduction A gentle and beautiful overture for the album. I love the placement of the instrumentals on this album and how Nick used them to frame the songs. It gives the album almost a semi-classical feeling, and it does place the album in the lineage of albums like Pet Sounds. Hazey Jane II I absolutely love the "Hazey Jane" pair. Both are highlights of Bryter Layter for me. When I was younger, I felt it was interesting that Nick put the song labeled "II" first on the album. I'd only ever seen numbered tracks placed in sequential order on an album. But Nick knew what he was doing. "Hazey Jane II" has quite a bit of drive to it, with those chugging drums and horns that sound almost jaunty. It seems to me to be a song about growing up. You have to leave the security of your family and friends to go out into a wide world full of people (and pain). But he says to hold on to our loved ones and what they have given us as we forge our own paths ('Now take a little while to make your story clear.'). I like his repeating of the Jane character, as she seems to be bits of all of us (including Nick). It's a wonderful song.
