    Interpol used the climatic intro as the basis for the song "The Lighthouse" - probably, check it out :)

    lanpe2 - "The best album from the era before Mr Scott "went west". " - Possibly, although all "big music" albums are memorable and even Fisherman's Blues had some classics, but thereafter, well I agree. . .pity really.

    Great tune from the Waterboys, I especially like the part where it all kicks off. Great album-opener.

    always be spontaneous, put our soul into it, let it go, it's gone, reconnect on the next plane.
