There's some good things happening on this album, but a lot of the tracks don't go anywhere nice. I know they're going for the whole dream sequence, 80s flashback sound, but it misses a mark in a lot of places.

I haven't really been writing anything recently. It isn't because I've been busy (although that's been somewhat true as of late) or not thinking about anything, it's just that I can't find the inspiration. It's a shame, really. I used to tell people that I wrote for me and what they thought of it didn't matter, but the more I dwell on that statement the more I know it isn't true. If I already know something there's no need to write it down. The reason you write is to share things with people - to help someone see your point of view and why you think the way you do. There is no point in writing if no one is there to read it. And the main pieces I used to write, music reviews, just don't do it for me anymore on a personal level. I guess this tends to happen when you lose focus with all the subjective points of view arguing for certain groups of music over others. I've played with the idea of a novel, but I don't think I have enough experience under my belt to take on a task that large yet. I think the only option at this point is to do some short stories. Maybe people will be inclined to read those more.

I'd read a nice short story as well. But I do think there can be a lot of meaning and purpose behind writing even if you don't share it with anyone.

And yeah for how disappointing/bad double albums usually are, this is crazy good.

Let's see, how many bands are going to cite this album as an influence in the next five years? Oh, so many.

Got this on vinyl and am blown away. Plays really well when you turn it up really fucking loud so that dream-pop wall of sound can evaporate your brain.

Love the part on "Raconte" where the kid gets stoned on frogs.

The first 25 minutes of this album is one of the top 5 sexiest sections of music ever made.
