no worries, matts...
both M2 and PTP, while beloved by me (and quite a few others), were made/created eons
i would hope he would've learned how to assimilate sounds/moods/to a more creative, higher artistic degree...not to mention being a songwriter with more maturity...in the good, experienced way
i actaully dream of an album so far more accomplished that it can eclipse either of these two top 5'...why wouldn't one want to see the lad do better ?
it'd be a proud moment, indeed, that at the end of this current musical journey, when all is said and done, i can easily and happily say my top 5 MIGHT
..that's actually a good thing, methinks
at the end of the end it's the start of a journey to a much better place and this wasn't bad so a much better place would have to be special...no need to be sad...
