...I remember listening to it a lot during an unsettled time in my life however, and it's funny how those connections can carry forward...
I can appreciate how personal experiences can influence one's feelings towards a song or album.
PG3 came out when I was 15 turning 16, thinking about my future, assessing friendships, questioning how I fit in, was I a normal person – things that teens dwell on when they’re alone in the dark.
So at that point an album of songs that touched on social alienation and madness seemed to speak to me on a personal level. The music was like nothing else I had heard from anyone else. I remember even being captivated by the strange lingering endings to some of the songs and thinking that every second had something unique to offer.
40+ years later I have no doubt my love for this album is partially coloured by my memories of being so enraptured by it in my youth.
