    Love the latest Twilight Sad album (Nobody Wants to Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave). It feels like getting a new good album by The Cure, but with Scottish vocals. Having Robert Smith cover There's a Girl In the Corner was completely unnecessary.

    I am a big lyrics guy, and "Disintegration" (the song) has some of the best lyrics ever:

    Now that I know that I'm breaking to pieces
    I'll pull out my heart and I'll feed it to anyone
    Crying for sympathy
    Crocodiles cry
    For the love of the crowd and three cheers from everyone
    Dropping through sky
    Through the glass of the roof
    Through the roof of your mouth
    Through the mouth of your eye
    Through the eye of the needle
    It's easier for me
    To get closer to Heaven than ever feel whole again

    Haha it's really not on purpose!

    I reckon it's because I'm a casual fan at best, only know and love the singles, can't really listen to their albums in full (aside from WMS and the self-titled). The WMS sound is lighter and that's why I like it.
    Не може со обични зборови да ја домами необичноста, зашто и необичните си имаат секој свој пат и тешко се среќаваат.

    Third night added at Madison Square Garden for June 20th.

    Wild Mood Swings is really criminally underrated. There's a lot of great stuff on there. Want, Jupiter Crash, Treasure, Trap, etc.
