I picked this up after playing guitar hero to the sound of possum kingdom, one of the bands earlier songs. I am glad I did, this album is excellent to drive to. I can't really liken it to any other band, maybe at a push a heavier kings of leon but that is stretching it. Opening song "so long lovely eyes" is easy to pick up and sing to. Other songs are similarly easy to pick up others are slow burners. Try it.
