On The Gentle Men - The Evolution of Tears
"@myotictesseract Well... 7 months later, difficult to remember. I would have to listen to it again, but as you can guess from my rating, I don't intend to ;-) Sometimes it's a riff, sometimes the timber of a voice, the lyrics of a song, a guitar intro, or even how a song made me feel. Can't remember here."
