Yeah, sounds like they were originally trying to make a bid for alt-rock radio and then midway through the songwriting process forgot entirely that they were trying to make a bid for alt-rock radio.

The song isn't nearly as bad as its title though.

It's weird, the guitar is more rhythmic, seems to be playing along with his voice and that just doesn't work with the abrasive nature of dreyer's voice. Although it gets better as the song continues...

Is their other stuff considerably better? I ask because O'Brother are supporting them for a couple dates and I want to see them in particular. Would be useful to know if I should leave before the main act.
