I thought that this wasn’t going to be something I wanted to listen to again. I noted that the second track got vocals like “Into the Ocean” and I was ready to abandon this. Why did I come back to it? I have no idea really. This isn’t a band I’ve been hearing a lot about, but for some reason I assume they’re somewhat popular and don’t need my words to sell records.
So on a whim or possibly to annoy my wife, I put this album on and heard it again for what was not the first time but what felt like the first time. Miike Snow came out to me. As did the Beach Boys. And just all this other greatness I hadn’t heard on here before.
By the end I was hearing Depeche Mode, but if they were happy. And they have a song about how much they love to shop, which I take to be as a satire on consumerism and so I like it. Now if I could just hear that song blaring through the speakers at the mall one day I’d be set. But, who am I kidding, that’ll never happen because I so rarely go to the mall.
