What's it about? The Golden Archipelago I mean. I have my own interpretation but it's pretty abstract. I kinda want to peak at the answer key.

My interpretation is that along with the album art, you've visited islands that became play things for the British and American Empires which did everything, including nuking the islands, then, simply lost interest and left. They left their mark on the culture that remained and as you visited you absorbed some of that.

So, what grade do I get? Am I entirely off? Are any of your listeners supposed to get it a 100% or is it better we're all left with our own impact?
