About Alex Pavitt
I work in the field of emotion. My tools are instinctual feelings and my laptop is the medium between my brain and the outside world. I deconstruct and rebuild. I imagine. I steal other people's lyrics because somtimes, my own words aren't enough. I spend all of my time somewhere inside my head. I worship Douglas Adams, and in the back of my mind I am always painfully aware that I will never be as good as him or, for that matter, anybody else.

    If Origin of Symmetry isn’t in your top 10 I will be disappointed.

    Also; I did not expect this Absolution > In Rainbows. I am shock-ed.

      *Refers you back to my top 42 albums of the decade (42 – 26) list*
      39. Muse – Origin Of Symmetry
      Citizen Erased is an awesome track, but it doesn’t make up for the general mediocrity (in comparison to the albums above it on the list) of a lot of the other songs on it.
      And yeah, In Rainbows has a few realy good songs, but considering its a 10 track album theres at least three that are a bit meh, and thats way to high a ratio of meh

        OH MY GOD, THAT WAS SO LONG AGO. I do not remember things.

        “high a ratio of meh”
        This phrase is made of win.
