It was as if I needed to hear everything this band had ever done, I needed more of that. And after relistening to F#A# for the thousandth time, Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven arrived.

    Storm. This is the single most moving piece of music I have ever heard. The cadence from the first movement sets the the tone for the second: Gathering Storm. This was what hooked me.
