Antennas to Heaven
I think one of the best feelings in the world is to listen to the first song off an album and fall completely for it such that by the time it is over you have to wonder why you waited so long to listen to it. I did it for "HLLLYH" by The Mae Shi and today it was done by "Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven" by godspeed you! black emperor. The only reason I even have that album is because of eMusic, and how you get so many downloads per month, and how when downloading albums you always end up with a handful of downloads left, and how gy!be albums are only 4 songs long, so you download two songs this month and two the month before that, and now you have 80 minutes of captivating music that was otherwise absent from your life because 30 second snippets don't do this band any justice but you decide to download them anyway because what else are you going to do with those two leftover downloads this month.
