I really like the title track as well, the "whoa oh oh"'s really make it catchy and fun.

I'll definitely need more time to get to know all the lyrics and tracks better. As everyone's said, it's not as immediate as the last two, but still enjoyable.

Don't know why I bother to stay up anymore when it will be on youtube (or interference) the next day.

Fuckin' right, it does.

"One For The Cutters" definitely sucks, though. Sorry, boys.

Thanks for neither of you talking to me about any of my feelings.

So I know I've mentioned this part of the song before, but the end of Constructive Summer gives me chills every time I listen to it for some reason:

Raise a toast to St. Joe Strummer
I think he might've been our only decent teacher
Getting older makes it harder to remember
We are our only saviors, we're gonna build something this summer

Yes, U2pm! Constructive Summer is one of the best new songs I've heard all year.

I love everything about it. That verse you quoted of course, the background screams of "Get Hammered!", and I love the line "Me and my friends are like..double whiskey coke no ice"

A perfect song.

Yeah, that Don't Look Down series is nice. I remember seeing a really cool one for Okkervil a while back.

I'll be watching these videos once I'm done watching this damned 13 inning baseball game.
