I like the Gin Blossoms, dammit. I don’t care what anyone thinks. New Miserable Experience a great, listenable album. No, its not Sgt. Pepper’s or Exile on Main Street, or even Tommy or Never Mind the Bollucks or whatever fucking obvious comparison you want to make. And yes, its "pop-y". So what? They’re good, enjoyable songs, and the song "29" strikes a chord with each passing day that I get closer to that age.
So to all you music elitists out there who hate them becuase they made the alternative popular, deal with it. Get over yourselves and enjoy the goddamn music.
