i just picked up my copy of In Flight. (i know, bad fan, bad) i fucking love it! i love the way the whole album just kind of takes you in. i was listening to it on my way somewhere the other day & i found myself completely oblivious to my surroundings. the album totally captured me. i can only imagine what it was like to hear it live.
