Wow, you're right! That's pretty rare, I think. That many ratings and not any sort of blip at the low end. Well, I guess it's the high number of total votes that forces the low end to flat line on this small graph. But still, you don't see this often.

I did not know what a CD is in 1990. Maybe five years later, more towards 2000, they started to be more common there where I lived at that time (a very small town in a post-communist country).

I booked 'em into a club with Max. Capacity (legal) of 52 including staff and band. 2 shows, (opening for Mojo Nixon!) sold 250 tickets and took turns on the sidewalk watching for the fire department... That stage was 6x8 maybe.

Wow, that's a real segway for me. I was just about to post about the times I've seen ST when I saw this post. First time was on their Uncle Anesthesia tour and they were opening for Drivin' n Cryin' at the smallest flippin' bar in Melbourne, Florida called the Wine Gallery (they had beer too). To this day I don't know how the brothers and Lanegan fit on the stage which couldn't have been bigger than 10' x 15'. Didn't really know ST at the time though had heard a few songs on the college radio (WFIT - best college radio ever at that time). This bar was about half the size of your typical 7-11. So ST does their set, I'm impressed, but really there to see DNC. Place is packed shoulder to shoulder, and DNC starts rocking out, I'm up front maybe 2 bodies back from Kevn's mike stand (BTW the stage is a whopping four inches high, so you're basically eye level with the band). Anyway, I'm trying to rockout and get some mild slamming going and this guy next to me nudges me and says "this crowd doesn't know how to rock out" I look over and it's one of the big brothers from ST. So I say something in agreement and he proceeds to slam into my shoulder and I back into his and that got the crowd moving. Fun times.

I’ve been reading the complaints below about Neil’s singing.  Besides being an old complaint I find it ironic considering the point of view of this particular song.  A scared young man, a kid really, tentatively doing what he thinks he has to do, which quickly turns out very badly.  I think Neil’s voice couldn’t be more perfect for it. 

Some voices are just beautiful; smooth as warm chocolate pudding and they are a thing to behold.  Others impress us with range or skilled technique.  And then there are the voices that simply have a character of their own.  They often have an everyman (or woman) quality that remind us that the emotions expressed therein are felt by and can come from any of us.  I treasure such voices.

I don't know why I only rated this a '3' before - think I was in a bad place then. Yep - that was it. Now, I'm in love, and it's a solid '8'. Ha! Life's like that.
