Sorry for the typo in the name.


Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. -- Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and writer (121-180)

Aw yeah!
If you would only recognize that life is hard, things would be so much easier for you.

The Amazing, "Circles". I'd call it drop-dead gorgeous.

From Pitchfork's review of The Amazing's album "Picture You":

The end result is a record that reverently draws from a dazzling array of past masters only to short-circuit critical capacity. Discussion of "Picture You" can only end up with slack-jawed remarks about how goddamn pretty it is. Stranger still is how the adverbs you’d feel tempted to latch onto that superlative somehow makes that seem like a bad thing: "obscenely pretty," "ridiculously beautiful," etc. But the Amazing specialize in a beauty that isn’t airbrushed or slick or antiseptic, the kind captured by lad mags or Trevor Horn, everything exaggerated to emphasize its status as eye or ear candy. Nor is it smudged or vaporous like shoegaze. It doesn’t even make a full attempt at an au naturel realism of folk or the otherworldliness of psych-rock, though it does touch on those aspects. "Picture You" is elemental rock—earthy, molten, aquatic, but using each of their qualities to soothe rather than destroy or intimidate.
