Yeah, why an 8%? That is fucking stupid.
And "Arguably the best song that Frightened Rabbit has ever written, this song seems to encompass the entire theme of this album, as it proclaims, “Let’s call me a Baptist, Call this a drowning of the past. She is there on the shoreline throwing stones, at my back. So swim until you can’t see land. Are you a man, are you a bag of sand?”
I completely argue with this claim. This song [despite its EPIC lyrical content, and I mean that, I truly do] is the most forumlaic song Frightened Rabbit have ever produced. It's such a "radio song" that it kind of disgusts me.
I would venture to say that "Things" is absolutely, hands down, the gem of this record. It's gorgeous. And builds upon itself, recalling "Keep Yourself Warm" from Midnight Organ Fight.
I suppose to each their own, but the structure of "Swim" is just way too easy for this talented band.
