you're never gonna be ok

In the CD/mp3 age, whenever I listen to an album, I always seem to focus on the first few songs. By the time I get to the second half of the record, I'm listening about half as closely as I was at first. It creates the opportunity for great songs to be "lost" on the second half of a record. This is partly the fault of CD's and mp3 playlists that don't need to be "flipped" (the concept of "sides" might be the worst thing about the demise of vinyl and tapes, and may be partly behind the revival of both). So sometimes it's not until much, much later, that I realize one of those "lost" songs is actually one of the highlights of the album. I mention this because of track 9 of 12 on In Desolation.




Yes, I've posted this before, but dammit this is a great song.
