    This is the era when I became a fan. For some reason I saw Bowling for Columbine at that age and I was impressed by his comments and the small part of The Fight Song. I remember telling a friend on MSN Messenger (remember that gem?) that I was watching him on MTV (remember when they had music? lol) and he said he saw him on that show. I was so jealous! Needless to say he's still one of my best friends.

    Right now I also look back at it as his last concept album and the last album where he actually had a band that was not only around for touring. And the last official band photos as far as I remember. Pity, but things go as the go I guess. Shit, a lot has happend since then. Maybe the most in his public career? His relationships, depressions, all that happened with Twiggy? The albums have been a whole lot different since 2003. In my view at least. The end of the Grotesk Burlesk tour is a turning point to me.

    Musically, I don't think it's his strongest effort. I like the first part of the album, but what I like most about it is that it's a album as a whole. Lyrically, thematically, musically, a nice opener and closer. Just an album that stands on its own as a whole. I really hope he'll make an album like that again in the future again. One with a set-up like this. Full of ideas, inspiration about a certein subject or part of history. A real concept album with a real idea behind it full of collaborations. (though I love every note he wrote with Bates)

    Hard to explain (especially in English) what I mean, and I hope it doesn't sound negative, because the album is special to me and always will be.
