  1. I found this annoyingly edited. Pauses are okay. They don’t all have to be hacked out with the remaining audio overlapped. A shame, and not DB’s fault obvs.

  2. The song I wish I wrote is Kantori Ongaku. For me at least is enigmatic playful honoring and ethereal.
    Sorry for the absence of commas. My keyboard is failing.

    It's sublime and summons deep emotion.

  3. devendra, your music definitely does this to and for me and you should know that. saturday night, mourners dance, linda, middle names 😭

  4. Pearl Jam’s “Black”.
    That’s the song I wish I wrote.
    “I know someday you’ll have a beautiful life, I know you’ll be a star — in somebody else’s sky, but why, why, why … can’t it be mine”.

    That might be the most beautiful lyric ever written.

  5. the one album i wish i wrote was ITAOTS
    as far as i'm concerned, no other album will be able to measure up to or touch on the same mystical, whimsical, explosive, and straight up beautiful soundscape that NMH created and perfected in ITAOTS
