14. the mountain goats- i think i'll just sit here & drink

first thing first; the knock-out song on the album is really "terrible angels." this isn't a 'nuff said issue here- terrible angels really deserves to be dwelt on. its lyrics are basically a lock-pick's fingers turning over my tumblers. apparently the singer is trained for opera? we'll i'd be her gentleman caller (least aways if i wasn't spoken for). "if every angel's terrible, then why do you welcome them," & talk of wearing purple eyes like rings? i need to get my shit together & download the entire corpus of that act. the rest of the album is very solidly a tale from a soldier to another, you dig? "why can't monsters get along with other monsters?" & shit like that. a whole song about time breaking the world! shit, i'm a lucky villian, slinking about the store- not a sunbeam, not a single customer, not any angel hair either mr. kobain. i've been here all day listening to this disc & looking at ICO screencaps. it is a particular sort of day. the only over-lap (the inevitable consequence of any mix) is the neutral milk hotel, so other than that? thats better than 90% accuracy!

it'd be swell if jenny was in a good mood when i got home.
