 The Weakerthans seem to either write songs that I can't stop playing or songs that I'm sick of before they're over. That said, I probably don't have ten musical memories that top hitting "Left and Leaving" first year of college. (Being across the country from everything I'd known up to that point probably augmented the effect.) "Fire Door", "Watermark", "Aside", and the title track all exist for me in an unassailable echelon where every charge against them ends up making me say "So what?"

 Also, I just had a transcendant moment listening to "Relative Surplus Value" while watching pigeons fight over a chunk of a ritz cracker during my smoke break at work. You've soundtracked my life again Weakerthans!
