This is heavily Lennon-esque and the guitars and drums sound great even the Come Together-drum rolls on the chorus. The solo is very cool if just a touch too loud - I would've liked it to sit a bit better IN the mix rather than on top of it. Still, that's trivial and this is a great job.

Maybe this is just a losing your religion over a girl, song. Maybe it is musically derivative. Well the music this is derived from needs to have more derived from it to make me happy. I find this suitable for repeated enjoyable listens. Love the solo.

Great title, great and original subject too. I agree with Ruud that it's got a Beatles vibe- I'd say heavy Lennon vibe. There is lots to love here, I'll mention for now the drums on the chorus and the bass throughout. That said, the chorus could resolve things a little more satisfactorily, I think and I'm going to round down to 4 stars for that reason. I'm downloading and won't be suprised if Iater wish I rounded up to a 5.

Throw as much money into this as Tweedy gets to spend, and this is the better record. Full bag of tricks here.

Hmm, it's hard to review a song when you aren't too fond of the genre BUT there are elements in the song that are way too cool to ignore, for me it's the superlative guitar work SO I'm going to indulge my guitardedness and give marks just for that, every lick & phrase hits at the right time, takes one section seamlessly to the next one and has the right tones for the job (that buried fuzztone didn't go unnoticed either, just peachy!)
Great work.

I like the opening and the verses best. There's something about the chorus that sounds too familiar to me, it pulls it to the muscle rock side. I like the end theme (more Beatle-esque) better and the guitar pieces are just great

These guys are too clever for their own good. Comparisons to XTC always seem to fit them without being obviously derivitive. High praise from me. They are building an impressive catalog of work here.

Quality recording with a lot of imagination in the production, reminds me of the recent Wilco appoach. I can't say yet if it touches me on an emotional level, but it's obviously very well done

Much less of a one band show than Wilco. Sounds like multiple writers involved in the songs (?)
