On the Gottenburg Odin
If you are an audiophile, you may be lucky to have 3 or 4 moments over an equal number of decades, where what you know to be 'true' is shifted and stood on its head. These are never thoughtful intellectual moments, rather gobsmacked moments of pure spirit, that leave you shorn open, never to be exactly the same again. (The way a truly great live performance changes you forever.) If you are not an audiophile, the next few paragraphs may just save you a lifetime of sampling and switching.
