    It's like Erato the Muse took all the best bits from Gold Dust, Winter's Carol, Garlands, The Beekeeper and Oysters and added layer on layer of frost and defiance and magic and made the most sublime thing she has ever recorded. I am struck dumb by how good this is ❤️

    Sigh....I can't believe that I thought this was boring on first listen. I must have been out of my mind. It's quickly becoming one of my all time favorites.

    I've just discovered that "you at the still point of the turning world" is a direct quote from TS Eliot's Burnt Norton, (Four Quartets):

    At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
    Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
    But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
    Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
    Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
    There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.
    Beautiful quote from an amazing poem.
    "If neurotic is wanting two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I'm neurotic as hell. I'll be flying back and forth between one mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my days."

    I don't remember the last time a song had staying power for me the way Reindeer King does. It's fucking mindblowing. Every time I listen to it it's a sonic experience and it takes me places. I remain completely in awe.

    Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.

    ^ I'd love it if we found out one day that it was a double in a wig.

    You could argue it was a double in a wig for the entirety of 2009

    Well, that's where the name Fori came from. It's like Tori broke out of the cellar she was locked in somewhere around 2010.

    That makes sense! I had never realized that's what Fori meant. But it does seem like that, and thank goodness she did too

    Why are we hijacking the thread about the best song coming out after a whole decade of Foriness with Fori material?

    It helps us appreciate how far we've come out of the darkness.
