Nostalgia bomb right in my dumb face

What in the actual fuck is wrong with people?
Apparently Wesley Eisold hates this record and I hate that. Because this is a very, very good record.
I have been thinking about this line a lot, esp. since I saw it referenced by Dan Bejar in a Washington Post feature I liked quite a bit. Not exactly in the way he uses it here, but the idea that music is the defense and lyrics are the offense. If the defense is amazing, you’re going to stay in the game. You won’t be terrible. But it’s hard to really stand out. There’s a lot of music like this, “vibe” music that sounds nice and is enjoyable to put on but isn’t exactly rich with feeling. If you’re only lyrics, though, and the music isn’t there, you might actually come over as really terrible (in the football analogy, you get blown out like 55 to 24). But when you have both you’re a true powerhouse.
Bejar said of Berman:
On David Berman: “He’s a sports freak so he’s always using sports metaphors. He [once said in an interview], ‘Music is the defense, words are the offense.’ I found that kind of emboldening. You need the music to be good, but you need the words to be great. If the music’s not good, you’re f—ed. But if the words aren’t good, you’ll only ever just be good.”
