It was the early 90's when I just recorded 45 minutes of a pretty good show on WVFS, Florida State's station. At the end of one side, a song played for 3 & something minutes & then got cut off. I moved west, playing that tape like a mix tape and that song haunted me. To this day, almost every time I listen to it, I fall back on the nearest couch or bed and trance out. I have played that song for all the roommates I've had working seasonally across the West, over a decade, had it played on the radio, taken it to Portland record shops, emailed and MP3 I made of it to friends, asking everyone what it was. Lots of guesses, but nothing. Then Shazam showed up! The song stumped it... That was a year ago. But tonight, Soundhound nailed it. It's been 20 years of wondering if I'd ever figure it out. I can't believe how much it's haunted me. I am so looking forward to hearing more of this Madder Rose as the album comes in the mail AND I will finally be able to hear the end of the song I know now as Waiting For Engines.
So my most enthusiastic five stars ever for an album of which I have only heard one song, and not even the whole song at that.
