They don't... read the review ;) That doesn't mean that they aren't totally enjoyable though. I hate that people ding bands for being awesome but 'unoriginal'. To me, it's cool because you don't have to wait as long for an album that has a sound that you're totally into.
I definitely wasn't implying that I only love bands that are on the cutting edge. I was trying to point out that none of the songs did "it" for me. I'm having trouble trying to explain it right now, but I have a feeling I might enjoy this a bit more if I were to listen to it again.
