29 years ago today, on Jan 15, 1990, released flood & released - two very different and very great records. I guess if you had asked me yesterday, I probably would’ve said that the album came out first, and the album came out a few years later, but they were both released on the same day. I love them both even though they were very, very different.
i’m pretty sure back in 1990, flood spoke to me in a very specific and very unique way, that was very relevant to my 21-year-old self. I loved the Sundays record, especially their first single , but flood just felt like such a more relevant album to me at the time.
Years have gone by, and the Sundays speak to me in a much more personal way now. They’re both such great albums, but flood is forever stuck in 1990 for me while reading writing and arithmetic continues to reveal new sides and new aspects that I couldn’t quite get before.
I never got to see the Sundays live, and probably never will-there’s talk, as recently as a few years ago, of a reunion. I did get to see they might be giants-they played at the in Orlando Florida - opened.
