The sun goes down before we reach Chicago. In the passenger seat Travis is excited for the ride, turning the lights on occasionally to look for cds and smokes and . I fall asleep listening to “Here My Dear”. For the first of what will be countless listens, I am immediately struck by the tone of Marvin Gaye’s voice at the beginning of the album. It is a tone I have never heard on any of his records – contempt. This is going to be a hard listen.
