7 years since I 1st heard the album. I bought it, along with every other Enz album I didn't yet have, took them home and played them all back to back. What stuck out about Mental Notes and Second Thoughts was that they demanded my full attention. Any other Enz album, I was happy to whack on, while I lost the other half of my head in whatever piece of art I was working on.
Incidentally, I can't believe SS got thru an entire article, without hanging sh!t on anyone, must be going soft in his old age!
