Soundtrack for figuring it out. I’m bipolar. Don’t need or want sympathy, we all got our things but this one is mine. Whenever things are in turmoil, I noticed that I often turn to music that doesn’t immediately make sense, if ever. The Books are probably at the top of that list, the wildly disparate puzzle pieces somehow evoke the right things, force my brain to see things in another way. The puzzles of life are infinite, most of us have several going at once.Sometimes, it’s good to move the puzzle pieces around, see the same thing from a different perspective.For me, The Books are the soundtrack to that mindset. Don’t know why, but these albums help.
