Records tend to fuel certain periods of your life. Every so often there's a record that you find that blows everything you're listening to away. It opens up a million different avenues to explore, new artists to hunt down, become obsessed with, and then turn yourself into that artist's one-man PR team whether anyone is listening to you or not. Sometimes that one record doesn't even hold up, and with each revisit the record becomes less and less tolerable, despite all the artists you now love as a result of that one, seminal record. 

So it goes.
