Music comes back as he goes through rehabilitation. What role does it play? Is its role different than earlier in the story?

Esther's gift of a Walkman and rap tapes to replace those destroyed in the war symbolize a new start. This is different from the purpose of the music earlier in the story when the boys used rap music to take their minds off what was happening in their lives..... it enabled them not to think and provided distraction.
