From the excellent writing in the sleeve notes of the Fleet Foxes album going around in my cd player right now.

“This leads me to something weird about the power that music has, its transportive ability. Any time I hear a song or record that meant a lot to me at a certain moment or I was listening to at a distinct time, I’m instantly taken back to that place in full detail…I can listen to music and instantly be anywhere that song is trying to take me. Music activates a certain mental freedom in a way that nothing else can, and that is so empowering, you can call it escapism if you like, but I see it as connecting to a deeper human feeling than found in the day-to-day world.”
