When it was on in the car, I’d always hear the first section (sometimes hearing a bit of the first [gasp] f-word) and my mom or dad would quickly reach to fast-forward the tape. There’d be a minute or so of tense silence and then the album would continue. When I later took the CD and started listening to the album on my own, I still don’t think I’ve ever actually listened to that track
Didn’t seem arsed about the other swears too much (unless my nan was in the car or something) but that one has 'em too thick and fast, I guess. Still get a vague ghost of the abstract panic whenever I hear a clip of that intro lol
Haven’t listened to them in years, this thread is a nice reminder to blast everything up to and including Meds. Haven’t heard anything from after that tho, feel like they dropped off my radar completely as an adult.
Reckon this is probably quite common. if you were ‘the right age’ when those first couple of albums dropped then it would track that by the time Sleeping with Ghosts came out, you might have ‘moved on’ or however you want to classify it.
