Here’s the passage that sounded so much like my own thoughts (though much better said). It’s from the blog at anirenicon.com.
“Some of you listen to songs and analyze their different parts, I let them wash over me in an uncritical bliss. On the occasion that I enjoy a song enough to think about it, I’ll listen to the lyrics. I’ll listen for the words, but I normally return to my pre-analytic, and slightly childish, joy of hearing without listening.
But with The Cave, it’s different.”
