I listened, cos I keep trying to give this band more chances, since a few of you drool over them.

But, yeah, no. Still a hater, so I guess it's "Fuck you NSW".

Whatever.

I think it's sorta lame too, honestly. I haven't liked the songs they've picked as lead singles for the two previous records either though (and flat out disliked the last album), so there's that.

I've tried, Scumbo. Lord knows I've tried. First cos of Shouter, then cos of GAF. Even stood there at Lolla listening to them Live when all I wanted to do was go far away.

It just aint happening. I think that listening to the song on that link represents my last time trying to give this band a chance.

I hope the interlanders that like the band enjoy the album.

I've done the same with Wilco. It happens, not everything is for everyone I suppose. Ain't no thang.

I like it.

It's more of the Hold Steady as "self-help band", though, which IYS has been talking about. The whole "I don't want you to settle, I want you to grow" thing.

I like the verses a lot, actually. Just not the chorus.

If you like the verses a lot how can you deem the song to be lame? Scumbo, you're a bigger liar than Bono one way or the other.

Probably because the chorus attempts to channel bands like Boner is a part of, and sounds ridiculously out of place.

Meh. Sounds like it was put out by Vagrant, which is pretty pathetic.

Most every record I have from Vagrant sounds better than that.

Oh wellz, I usually don't like their lead single, so there's still the possibility that I'll love the album. Despite all the crap I give Stay Positive, it has 3 tracks from that I absolutely love.

Sorry to be uncool for liking a well-liked indie band, but I actually really like that new track.

Yeah, it's pretty pleasant. Nothing memorable, but the melody is nice. It needs a strong riff to really take off.
