What music means to me...

Quoting from Glenn MacDonald's wonderful The War Against Silence, and a review of Tori Amos' Tales Of A Librarian

"But that isn't what I'm thinking as I listen to these records of befores and afters. I'm not thinking about what's coming next, out of vaults or fingers. I'm remembering what it felt like to love these songs when I was fifteen and twenty-five, and I'm breathless at what they can still do to me. I'm in love with the persistence of rapture, and ready to love everything I've ever loved forever. These records aren't occasions for my faith or justifications for my hope, they're only small rewards for a few good days of dedication and belief. But if we cling to our prizes, some nights, we will call it comfort, and rest for new loves tomorrow."
