    So I was blasting Vessel on a long drive after a stressful weekend of moving and I had an epiphany. I realized exactly why that reggae break always hits me so strongly. I realized that the frantic tension built during the bridge that drops into the sort of blissful numbness of the lilting reggae beat perfectly mimics the emotions felt when anxiety builds and then you give into an addiction or coping mechanism. I don’t know if that’s what they intended to evoke with the music but it is how it makes me feel.

    • That’s super interesting. My weakness is understanding the musical side of things, and I could definitely see this being a thing.
