In any event, I looked over the glowing reviews and said, "why not?" I tossed Warm Strangers into the cart and several days later, I had the CD.
It usually takes me a long time to "assimilate" new music, sometimes a year or more until it really catches my ear. But it had only been a week or so, and maybe only two listens when it happened that I had my Sennheisers on while I was focused on writing, and "My Medea" came up on shuffle. I rewound it to the beginning. I cranked up the volume. When the words came around to, "for you, I'd burn the length and breadth of sky," I got chills. I grabbed the CD and read over the liner notes as I played it again. And again. Then I listened to the entire CD. As I was listening to My Medea for probably the tenth time, I was on Amazon again ordering Waking Hour and Dreaming Through the Noise and Googling for the official Web site.
My Medea is probably my favorite song on Warm Stranges =D
Thankles for sharing, love ;]
