If you don't have this album, you have been missing out for the last three years. This is one of those rare cds that does not have a throw away track on it. From "is this thing on?" until the final track ends in grand indie rock power chord fashion, this cd grips you with intricate drumming, grooving bass lines, and delicious interwoven guitar parts. For a reason that I can't put my finger on, this album has the ability to make me equally sad and happy at the same time. Few cds have ever had that ability, and that is why this is among my all-time classics. If you have ever listened to this record alone at night while remembering old friends, good memories, or your childhood, you know exactly what i mean. "Red and Blue Jeans" is probably my favorite indie rock song of all time. Just try to listen to it without humming the seemingly happy "doo doo" and yet feeling your heart break over that special someone. These guys are getting bigger and better with every release. Those of us who have had this album since it came out know why. For those of you who have just discovered the Promise Ring, be sure to make "nothing feels good" a part of your collection.
