Quite Suppressed Yet Quite Revealing: Tuesday, January 29

Blue October is a great band, and Justin Furstenfeld has one of the most gorgeous voices i know. This song, "Amazing," was the last track on their 2003 album "History For Sale." last tracks on an album always seem to be long, winding, and introspective...sometimes the experiment works, and sometimes the experiment fails. i'm almost never ambivalent on the final track of an album; i either love it or hate it.

this song works...to say the least. it's the best of their best. it's such a sad song; i can't decide of the person speaking knows he's a schmuck or is just going through a self-esteem crisis, but he's crying out for someone to love him. with a song this beautiful, it would be hard to resist.
