Backtranslation:
Listening to this record for the first time was almost a spiritual experience. As if someone turned on the light. Like an epiphany. I just stood there eyes and mouth wide open and thought: "What's that?". I immediately understood: "That is more than just music" and intuitively I felt "This is important. You have to listen very carefully to make sure you don't miss anything." Because before that I mainly listened - like all other kids in the early nineties - to Guns 'N' Roses and Skid Row. And with them you really didn't need to pay much attention to the lyrics. Although the older I become the more I realise how misogynistic, sexist and racist 'Appetite For Destruction' really is. But of course when I was seven years old I did not know about these things. And today I couldn't care less about them. Sex, Drugs & Rock 'n' Roll is just a poor stereotype I have no use for. But the condensed anger and the working class attitude of The Clash remain to be awesome.
