Since lyrics are pretty low on the list of things I process in music, it took me way to long to really appreciate how brutally honest and ugly Pinkerton is.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

When I was younger and even more naive/less critical, I associated with ugly and honest with value. The act of confession of something horrible necessarily made it "good art." But I've lost a lot of that crude individualism.
