    1. How did you get into 31? (UVERworld)
    D-tecnoLife was the second opening theme to Bleach. I loved the song and sought out more of their music, which at the time was very little (on a major label and thus available, that is). They've kinda disappointed me since but still have lots of great songs, and come up with new great ones every now and then too.

    2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? (Czesław Śpiewa)

Mainly because it isn't really an album, but rather a compilation of three great songwriters: Neil Young (finally finally!), Stephen Stills and Richie Furay (didn't know him actually). You would think that because they are together in a group, they try to adjust their songs a little bit so that the album has some coherence. Not :) The only coherence you can find here is the first song that is sampled in the last song (sung by Dewey Martin, the drummer, instead of Neil Young).

    Does an album need coherence? No, not really when it is as good as this. It just takes some time to get into it.

    So, the music? Neil Young is already being the Neil Young he will become (some songs are also used on his later albums) with Mr. Soul being the best song on the album. But the slow Expecting To Fly is also really beautiful (There you stood on the edge of your feather…
