    The cover art reminds me of Barrett (Syd Barrett)

    The stretch from Shine a Light to It's a Curse can stand toe-to-toe with any album. Classic.

    perfectsquish, it's off of the album "at mt. zoomer", which is a fantastic album.

    "Shine A Light" is my favorite off this album, great road trip song. But "This Heart's On FIre" takes me back to some good times, can't believe it's already been half a decade since this came out!
