Before we dive into some new/not new music, please remember the awesomest ever movie Three Musketeers (1973) and the scene when d'Artagnan had to sell his "horse". Now read the title along the old man's intonation. You get the resignation now?
Adopting my amazing friend's viewpoint, I'm trying to listen to the new album as if the previous ones didn't exist. It's also kind of adopting of what Banana Yoshimoto demands with her books - every time a new one is released, she asks bookstores to remove previous ones from the shelves. It's a very postmodernist approach, right?
