This band is talented, but they are better than this.
Yeah, that was pretty much my point. The best way for me to explain it may be this: I listen to a ton of albums while I'm at work, and this is one of those that you don't realize it right away when it's stopped playing. Van Occupanther
on the other hand almost distracts me from getting work done. It doesn't allow itself to be background noise. This just doesn't command your attention that way.
