In my college days, Happy Sad was my #1 "light a candle in the dorm room and hop beneath the sheets with my girlfriend" album. Set the mood better than any other I can think of. Beautiful, sensual…nothing quite like it. An album I'll never tire of.
I'm more of a Starsailor/Lorca guy, but all of his albums are excellent.

Yes, you want to "grow," but what are you growing to? It may feel good to you as an artist to do this, but if you're leaving your greatest strengths behind...what then?

I'm very much with you when it comes to this dilemma and Tim Buckley.
What do you think Tim Buckley lost when he started becoming more exheroinmental?
At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed.
