Well, the way I see it, any band that's been making music for 30
years without losing its edge, with a Ph.D. for a lead singer,
that can write a song about Boltzmann's orchestration of the law
of entropy on the same album as songs about heroin abuse, social
justice, superstition, and other just general awesomeness,
easily deserves to be listed among the likes of Ravel, Holst,
and Debussy.

Maybe it's just me.

it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real
hatred of mankind.
