Spartan wrote:LOL I see what you are saying ZZS, it's just that those things don't depress me per se. Fight Club is dark, paranoid, isolated yet funny and innovative, much like a Radiohead album. I never hear anybody say that is depressing. The Liars are dark, paranoid and disconnected yet they aren't called depressing either. DJ Shadow is paranoid and dark and disconnected, no-one calls Endtroducing a depressing album.

that, at least for me, borders on the manic and agressive...

an interview with them where they were working with the symbol of the
Drum as the super-confident, creative energy and Mt. Heartattack as the
unsure, unsteady, brooding aspect.
