20,000 Days on Earth

20,000 Days on Earth ★★★★★

"Do you wanna know how to write a song? Songwriting is about counterpoint. Counterpoint is the key. Putting two disparate images beside each other and seeing which way the sparks fly. Like letting a small child in the same room as, I don't know, a Mongolian psychopath or something and just sitting back and seeing what happens. Then you send in a clown, say, on a tricycle, and again, you wait, and you watch...and if that doesn't do it...you shoot the clown."

Oh, Nick, I love it when you talk like that to me.

A dizzying, inspirational masterwork, shrouded in its own absurdist mystery.

A mysterpiece, if you will.
