the new boysetsfire album
I'd just like to take the time to thank boysetsfire for putting out a significant chunk of musical brilliance. It's called The Misery Index: Notes From The Plague Years and it has dominated 80% of my itunes and ipod play for the past 2 weeks.
Now, the album is not for young children. It is also not for people who enjoy bad music. And it is not for ardent Bush supporters (at least those who get angry when another point of view is stated). If you have any one of those limitations. . . whatever, I'm not posting any disclaimers. I'll let Jason do that after me.
I love the creativity in the melodies, the obvious and intentional musical talent that these guys play with, and the passion that they present so eloquently in every song. Hearing this album has brought my respect for these guys one notch higher and I recommend it . . . to those allowed to have it (you see, Nathan swears sometimes). For those of you offended by swearing . . . let me say this. If you can manage to look/listen past it, you'll be inspired, moved, and entertained by some great music.
Thus ends my review of The Misery Index.
Oh, and by the way, I play trombone and trumpet on two songs.

If it weren't for pick-pocketers I'd have no sex life at all.
I remember the time I was kidnapped and they sent a piece of my finger to my
father. He said he wanted more proof.
When I was born the doctor took one look at my face ...turned me over and
said. Look ... twins!

Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.
Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.
