Does anyone ever get caught off guard by a Pedro or Headphones song, as if it's the first time you've heard it? I was almost home tonight and I flipped to the first slot in my CD changer and it was a live Pedro show. Magazine came on as I was pulling into my driveway and I had to sit in my parking space for a few minutes, captivated, wanting to hear more, not able to turn it off. I seem to do that with some Headphones songs too. Weird. Am I alone in this?
holy crap, i listened to winners straight through on my ipod last week and i think i decided it's my favorite ptl album. i always criticized it (and had heard it criticized) for not being a consistent enough collection of songs, but I realize now the reason i'm in love with it is because it's all over the place. it opens so well with slow and steady and reaches some really tangible emotions throughout. It's one of the few cd's i own that still sorta gives me goosebumps. holy shit, mind of her own, sheesh.
