Observations and arguments.

Complete exposure of one’s mania

“When I hear incredible records, I feel like the people involved in those records were on some kind of a mania that was, like, possessing them, and that only they could really grasp. And if they tried to dumb it down for other people, it wouldn’t be as awesome, because it wouldn’t be as complete an exposure of their mania.”

– Rock producer Steve Albini, in an interview with Jesse Thorn for The Sound of Young America
