  • anticipating everything, little know ;)
  • That ain't me babe hyip! (Tell me he's not saying "hyip" in that part.)
  • I personally only really enjoy The Colour of Spring, Spirit of Eden, and Laughing Stock. I almost can't stand the older stuff, but fascinating progression, this band.
  • REUNION TOUR HYPE
  • Laughing Stock is simply beautiful.
