See, I never really felt like I got this band before. I liked a bunch of their songs. I got why kids were relating with the lyrics. I understood the passion and the excitement. But there was never an it moment that cemented for me that this was anything special. It was good, it was fun, but with all the excitement I was seeing from other fans online … I’d always go back and re-listen to the albums hoping that I was missing something. That after this listen I would fully get why everyone was so excited about this band. I’d always leave those listens a tad disappointed — I know what it feels like to hear an album that completely shatters you and changes you … I could see so many other people getting that feeling … why wasn’t I?
Good read. Those last 3 lines... You are a very quotable man!
