I feel it happens to be one of the weaker songs, and is a little misleading as a representation of the album as a whole.
I've already warmed up to the single, but this is still comforting and intriguing. I'm not sure I could swallow a whole album styled like the single. I'd prefer it to be varied.
Never whistle while you're pissing.
