It's an ok song but wayyyyyy too short. For the first new song in a different direction of his music it isn't very good. "Texas" is one of my favorite albums and I see no reason for a change in style. The eletronic style is what I feel in love with and I would hate for him to change into something else that isn't even better than his previous work..
From a musical standpoint, it IS a lot better, though, and I think that's part of what Dan is going for (he'll come in eventually and correct me if I'm wrong). I understand that it lacks the appeal of straight-forward electro-rock, but I think it's a great direction that shows a huge growth in musicianship and creativity.
But, we're all entitled to our own opinions, and I respect yours.
