    General CommentThis is one of the most interesting Instrumentals he adds. It's so easy to skip over the instrumentals, but not this one. It's just too strange.

    General CommentI'm not quite sure Stevens has a connection with the community but Byrne's was real. She was a progressive reformer that did much for Chicago, from what I've read on her at least. Either way, we need more progressives like her in office today. On a note more related to the song, what a funky little track. Stevens' "The Avalanche" is a nice supplement to the very popular "Illinois."
