I heard this song on my alt. rock radio station today. Perhaps it was the melody, or the vocals, but I was transported back to the '80s. I would have closed my eyes and relished the moment, but I was driving in my car. Some people think the song sounds like something from U2, or Bob Seger. I'm not sure I agree, but I am comforted by the strangely familiar voice that, ironically, I have never heard before. The band has been criticized for going mainstream, much like No Doubt or Fall Out Boy. However, I know a catchy song when I hear one, and this song has stayed on repeat for about 20 minutes, and I probably won't be able to get it out of my head for the next couple of days.
