6.fades in, insults his teachers. FCC: says F^CK
9.minor key love angst
10.horn solo over rockout
12.loud mess
13.quiet! slow! A Doors cover!
16.no wave noise
17.angular, don’t disturb your kids
18.thumping, driving
19.repetition, aggroaning, feedack
20.quiet intro, bursts of feedback, anti-principal FCC: says m*therf^cker
21.better recorded, great sax interplay
22.kid monster song
23.weirdly angular, not so aggressive
24.sounds like rock to me
25.he walks thru walls
26.nice insecurity song
