I never realised age of adz was post-apocalyptic themed. I should pay more attention to lyrics/album titles!
I've been getting "now that I'm older" in my head a lot this week. Probably because it's a soothing song for a crisis.


Yeah it's an interesting mix of doom-and-gloom, hopefulness, and accepting mortality. I think "I Want to Be Well" is actually specifically about illness, though probably more mental rather than physical.

It's really more the artwork that's apocalyptic than the thematic material, but the music was apparently heavily inspired by the artwork.

I've been on a real Springsteen kick. May have happened regardless of the situation, but there's something about his earnest, strangely hopeful, hook-heavy rock'n'roll that I find particularly exhilarating at the moment. I've also been listening to lots of Joni Mitchell and The Band and Neil Young and Nick Drake and John Martyn, though, so maybe I'm just turning into a boomer.

Nah, that's when you start listening to exclusively Jimmy Buffet.

"Darkness on the edge of town" by Springsteen is 1 of the most powerful albums he made.

I'm getting into "skeleton tree" by nick drake and the bad seeds. This album is amazing. Very deep.
And then to loosen things up - some johnny cougar. Great rock n roll . So under-rated.
