Did Bryce hit Aaron in the head with a beer? I need to watch this again after work.

"Punks and cannonballers" aside.

Love it!
Punks and cannonballers is from a totally different and far superior song, though.

Awesome music video, but Graceless is one of my least favorite tracks on the album.

With that comment, I wonder if someone didnt hit gaf in the head with a beer. Or perhaps something harder. I need my girl is an excellent song, but graceless is possibly my favorite song off the album.

The rhyme scheme in the verses gets tiresome for me.

Let's see how many things I can think of that rhyme with the word graceless!

I don't hate the song. I just like most everything else on the album better.

That's my one complaint with the album overall, the rhyming on every song is almost as tiresome as a Saturday night live skit. Alright already, we get it. But it just keeps going.

Fever/freezer is the worst offender on that front.

I haven't enjoyed Fireproof since pImperor pointed out the painfully repetitive lyrics.

That one's not so much the repetition as it is the lousy melody and trite lyrics. Worst song they've done since the debut, and I think I probably even like all those better.

I still think pink rabbits is way too repetitive, but I do like it now.

Fireproof is the one track I would cut from the album as well. It's not bad, just unnecessary. And a transition from Cap to Sea of Love would be wonderful.

You're totally right. That's how they posted it on social media, but I totally blanked in that post.

Graceless rules though.

Fever/freezer is a low point.

I really love Slipped.
