Refused and Bright Eyes in the same fucking RIYL? Jesus, that shit turns me off to a band from the git-go.

Some of these RIYLs are very intriguing.

I wrote that RIYL. Fuck you.
But seriously, it makes sense if you listen. Bright Eyes' Christmas album meets The Shape of Punk to Come. Admittedly, the Refused reference might be a little bit of a stretch for this one. Their older stuff was more similar; the holiday release is a lot less aggressive/more somber.
