Some bands aren’t really bands at all, but really just one person with amazing talent. The The was really just Matt Johnson…until “they” became so popular that a proper touring band had to be put together in the late ’80s.
I have to admit, I did not like this record the first time I listened to it. The next time I gave it a chance, months later, I was like “WTF was I NOT hearing???”
One of my all time favorite albums now.
Lesson learned: NEVER write off an album after just one listen.
