rocking my world

I've loved Mercury Rev ever since I bought a tape of Yerself Is Steam from the Record City on Charleston the summer before my Senior (?) year. I remember listening to that tape every morning that summer as I got ready to go to work for Kerry Gifford's electric company & thinking back, the sprawling, out there cosmic rock was probably the best soundtrack for that time of my life as I dumped sand in trenches in the 100+ degree sun.

So, here I am, ten years latder, and Mercury Rev's providing the soundtrack to my life again. The Secret Migration is a tight, beautiful, almost poppy album, and man, it's good.
