Really? From Menos on ... I've thought they were great. Quirky and full of double meanings. "Pachuca Sunrise" is damn good.

Midnight on a beach in the Mediterranean
And I miss you
Even here, taking it all in
The sand, silvered, carries the moon on its shoulders
Is it possible to put this night to tune, and move it to you?

Don't cry, I'll bring this home to you,

If I can make this night light enough to move
Don't cry, i'll bring this home to you

Cargo ships move by, tracing on the horizon line

There's a luster from the city lights on the waves that kiss our feet
And we're thinkin' of goin' in (thinkin' of goin' in),
The time's getting thin


"God awful" seems ridiculously over the top.

While they've consistently gotten better I've still never really like them at all. I'm probably just really horrible at analyzing the meanings to them, but I still feel like they're very empty and straightforward, which some people might like, but it doesn't strike me as anything very good.

Not really sure how lyrics can be generic actually.
Wait, really?

Whose lyrics are you usually drawn to?

Nick Torres is probably my favorite lyricist. I also really like the lyrics that Kenny Vasoli has been writing with Person L. Also Dustin Kensrue's stuff, but I'm just a thrice fanboy.

Then I have no idea why you wouldn't like MtB's lyrics.

What? How can you even compare them?

Have you ever listened to Menos El Oso front to back?

Yeah, many times, I love Minus the Bear, but don't care much for their lyrics.

I am a huge, huge Minus The Bear fan but this song isn't doing anything special for me. I like both "Into The Mirror" and "Broken China" a lot more. It's not a bad song, but it just doesn't seem special. Maybe it'll grow on me.

I agree. I'm always excited to here their new material, but this sounds even more bland than Planet of Ice was. They've definitely lost a lot of what it was that made them a pretty special and unique band around HRP and MEO.
