I can't stand this guy's voice. Which is weird because I love all the comparisons he's getting to other vocalists. I'll try listening to it again because this review was pretty good and maybe it just missed me the first time around.
i can see what you're saying. try this, if you would: head to the myspace page and listen to some of the tunes towards the bottom of the player (particularly "Up with Mittens, Down with Gloves" and "Building a Building"). they're from the band's first full-length and the sound is a little less raw. maybe you'll dig those a bit more.
