This cd (ME) showed me the meaning of life. At first I was like – this is good – then I was like – this is killing me. It kept on killing me until I was literally dead and found that I was able to survive only through the healing, regenerative powers of the music itself. Daaaaaaamn baby! CDBaby, Chuck Mearse
