    “Split this full moon heart!”

    This album holds a kind of special place in my heart, as it can be described as the soundtrack of my last year at high school. Both in the sense that me and my friends played it a lot at the time, but also because it captures the essence of that year musically, in some strange way. I really don’t know what it is, but when I listened to Farewell Transmission again this summer, after not hearing it for quite some time, it made me strangely melancholic. A bit watery in the eyes, it kinda made me realise that the mentioned era of my life was over. It was an odd feeling.

    As you might have noticed by now, I like albums that manage to capture melancholy. I guess I’m just a depressing person. And this is, for me, somewhat like the chieftain of these albums. Still, with the notable sadness always present throughout, it also holds some kind of unmistakable, uplifting joy. …
