being worthy of a second look

Roger Hodgson's 1984 release "In the Eye of the Storm" is a damn fine album. My friends at the time convinced me it wasn't, and that there was something wrong with me for enjoying it. But that's 7th grade for you.

How did I go 20 years without questioning that?

In related news, it turns out the trick to avoid becoming dated as a musician is to not play what everyone else is playing. If you're out of place in your own time, you'll continue to stand out when that time becomes an embarassment to everyone who lived through it.

Of course, surviving financially is a very different trick.
