Only just heard about Neutral Milk Hotel's album 'In the Aeroplane under the sea', as an aside in an article about how much it is now revered after being ignored at the time. So I listened to it today pretty much determined to dismiss it. But... I love it. Hard to qualify it - dark/light, frothy/deep, melodic/tuneless... I think it'll bear repeat listening
I have seen many good, strong men try and fail, but am I not also a good and strong man?
I step up boldly, take hold of the handle, and my mind fills with visions of worry, of powerlessness, of compromises tarnishing my honour, of a weight heavy enough to crush my soul.
My mouth full of bitterness, I let go of the handle.
I look around, and none who had tried to pull the sword from the stone before me will meet my eyes.
