Music is a powerful thing to many people. I say many because some either have this trait and some don't, i suspect more do then do not. What is it? Basically, a certain song, group of somehow related songs or an album comes to represent a time.
I'll never lose the feeling i get when i listen to Dookie from the 1st track all the way to the perverse hidden track. To me that album is significant, not because it's mind blowing (by any stretch), but because it's the first real album i ever listened to and learned.
At any rate, at this crossroad in my life I've encountered a fairly new album that speaks to me. I feel i owe them money for putting my feelings into words.
Now excuse me while i go loath in my emo-ish inde rocking world of self pity.
Feel free to kick me in the nads and tell me to stop being such a *****
