Four Months of Darkness (2003)

Tonight, I went out with a friend after work for a beer. Somehow, a conversation started about how we love full-length albums more than single songs. We were discussing how in the digital world, albums are sort of a thing of the past. Bands and artists still make albums, but how much do all of those songs matter when people will just go on iTunes and buy individual songs? Do people go out and buy a record, go home and listen to the whole thing all the way through anymore? Call me naive but that's how I feel. So many memories of mine are tied to albums and love them because of it. It's weird when you still listen to albums you've been listening to for years and you don't even like that genre of music anymore. Don't do too many drugs because memories are probably the most comforting thing you'll ever have.

This album is by a band called Saxon Shore. They are an instrumental band which means there aren't any lyrics...yet they still seem to have a strong emotional effect on me. Maybe it's the accordion. I'm a sucker for an accordion. It's a great album and I highly recommend it.
