The Title

I feel like I should explain the title of this blog.  It actually does not refer to immigration issues or the homeless, though it sounds like it might.





They're Only Chasing Safety, pictured above, is one of the best albums I've listened to lately.  Released in 2004, it was Under√łath's fourth CD.  The sound is powerful and refined for all its hardcore raucousness, the lyrics are purposefully thematic, and hope shines through the desperation that permeates it.  The absolute high points of all the band's music I've heard are to be found in the songs A Boy Brushed Red… Living In Black And White, It's Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door, and Some Will Seek Forgiveness, Others Escape.

I understand it might be hard for you to take this band seriously with song titles like that, especially if you haven't heard them.  The solution is just to take a listen.  Get on Playlist or Grooveshark with some decent speakers or earphones plugged in and find out what you've been missing (you too, Dad).

That I like the CD having been established, why name my blog after it?

Why not?

Also, it's really hard to think of anything original.
