Do you ever listen to a song and realize the verses and choruses blend together and there are no real ups and downs in the music? It’s kind of boring. Even if a band has some wacked-out rockabilly nut hollering like a maniac and spazzy guitar riffs right and left, if there’s nothing to latch onto, there’s no real point in listening to it more than once. I’ve listened to this a few times now, but when I sit down to write about it, just moments after the record has finished, I’ve already forgotten the songs.
