I think I purchased that one in....fall 2000, maybe? Not sure off the top of my head. It was in high school (pre-fall 2001) I know that for sure. It's only gotten better with time IMO, although I admit to never quite understanding what the big deal was with "Pure And Easy," though perversely I like "The Song Is Over" and "Getting In Tune" more than most people do. (I cannot remember which of the two Rich Bunnell once referred to as "a plodding nothing of a song," I think it's the latter.)
Pete's level of pretension concerning the Lifehouse period has to have been the greatest ever *attempted* in rock, even if he got nowhere near what he wanted to do (imagine if the band really would have taken up permanent residence at the Old Vic and would have performed there ever since 1971.) But I love him for it, y'know?
And now, back to watching footage of the 1985 Heysel Stadium disaster in Germany. 2:10 is some really horrifying SHIT!!!!
