I don't have to keep listening to this, do I? I'm really bored.

Think Liam's quite a fan.
Going through the thread out of terminal boredom. I am quite a fan of King Crimson, yes.

To be fair, those songs were actually pretty good. They hold up as thrashy metal tunes.

Loving your thoughts, Liam.

Now that you mention it, I'm not sure I noticed him one bit.

No, it's not. The presence of the moon in the sky, the orbit of the sun and the current timezone affects this. For example, I'm currently in DST. The sun sets at 8pm and rises at 6am. Ergo, the darkest point in the night is slightly after halfway between these two points, about 1:30am. That's not before the new day in either "right before midnight" or "right before sunrise". Get your science in check, Johnny.

Nah, his one good alcoholism song is The Mirror.

You're right about The Shattered Fortress, but the rest are highlights of their respective albums for me. Really! Even Repentance is a moment of quietness on an album that is almost always blaringly loud.

Begin Again breaks into orchestral disco at the end? Sure! Why the fuck not.
