I'm pretty sure Gold Motel could release an absolute masterpiece and I would still want THS to get back together just because they were one of my absolute favorite bands all through high school and mean so much to me
I actually prefer THS to Gold Motel. I don't really like this whole super up beat pop music thing. Then again, my favourite part of THS was Bob's voice in songs like "Wine Red" and "Medicine Man". Gold Motel is really freaking good though.
Edit: Not "Medincine Man", I was thinking of "Not Yor Concern".
