Makes No Sense At All captures the visions, ramblings, and memories of Chris Strouth, a Twin Cities-bred master of music, film, and everything else.
We are living in strange and confusing times. Arguably the biggest band in the world just gave their brand-new 13th studio album Songs of Innocence record to everyone with an iTunes account, AKA the vast majority of the world's record-buying public.
Not that this is big news if you live any of your life online. You almost have to work to avoid it, and everyone seems to have an opinion. What's stunning is that it mostly seems to be variations of the same sentiment about the album being an unwanted gift. You'd think people were forced to listen to it. For all the myriad articles on the subject, almost none talk about the record itself. This is because we are in the post-unifying album era. The meme concerning the record's means of distribution are the only thing holding this narrative together.
