I have been listening to XMII here and there, sometimes all in one sitting though usually not. PT in general, as I've kinda said, is a group I hear with different ears now than I once did. Our talking about them has reminded me what it is about that music that really reaches me, and XMII being "old but new" has been a lot like a long-lost gift from the past. It's sappy, but I feel the music caters to self-reflection.
favorites are tough for me -- they always are-- but I feel you on trains and shesmoved on; it's tough to deny their greatness
