The Band I Remember

today I dusted off some old records
they were from my favorite band
wanted to listen from start to finish
six to be exact

the first record was full of angst and anger
very nostalgic for me
the right album for a troubled teen

the second showed more structure
very powerful
it almost didn't seem like the same band

the third was the Vincent van Gogh
containing the Mona Lisa
and 7th symphony
perfection with each track
my go to record

the fourth felt like a new stage
as if they'd finally reached adulthood
guess I did as well
the political tone really resonates

the fifth felt like the end
songs that talked about rock being dead
and changes in the music industry
still a great album
even if it's hard to listen to

the sixth came years later
like a phoenix rising
giving one last diamond
not as good as their first or third
but enough for me to say
yeah, this is the band I remember
