I was so excited when Method & Sentiment came out because I loved Cap'n Jazz. I listened to it extensively and liked how weird it sounded to me at the time.
It sounds considerably less weird to me now, but I still enjoy it. I saw them on their first tour, and several times after that. I lost interest around Live In Chicago, but those first few times I saw them they were fantastic.
In the summer of 1997 I was driving through the night from Oakland to Olympia, WA to attend Yo-Yo A Go-Go. Around sunrise we drove past Mt. Shasta and were listening to A Portable Model of..., which was a pretty awesome way to greet the day. I still remember that experience fondly.
