Strangest Thing

Am I just living in the space between
The beauty and the pain?

Just when I thought there’s no way The War on Drugs could top their last album, along comes this wash of reverb, guitar, and emotion in “Strangest Thing.”

Starting at 2:40, the synths kick in, and the guitar part takes the lead – I got goosebumps. I closed my eyes, and I felt.

Some might think 6:41 is too long for a song. Me? It’s not long enough for this one.
