Music:Fools Gold - The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses
As I spend the afternoon sorting the insanity of our loose CDs -- Kim is to blame, certainly, but so am I -- I've been listening to records that make it easier to maintain a balance between diligence and deleterious fixation. Right now we're coming to the end of The Stone Roses' first album, which one of my Canadian LJ friends mentioned approvingly a few months back. It has been a long time since I listened to the whole thing. But, boy, does it hold up. As Kim said when I first put it on, "It sounds so fresh." Fresh like 1989. Fresh like falling over and over again until the weight is carried outward like debris in a vortex. Fresh like making eye contact in the muted red glow of a distant heart.
