You Got it Goin' On
Nice rocker. You'd think they'd have another 20 years ahead of them.
And with all the loves and hates and passions just like mine...

Hmmm...I need more listens. Thanks for pointing this out, found it on Spotify, weird it wasn't on Pledge Music

The more spins, less I like it. The song sounds too forced and generic And like the single, the lyrics are lazy.

That's precisely what I've struggled with on a lot of CT's material ever since CT97.  As good as the tunes have been, sometimes the lyrics have been lazy rehashes of previous songs at best, and inane at worst.  Ever since RZ took over from Rick as principal lyricist, the words have definitely deteriorated...

Exactly. But the lyrics have suffered even earlier than that- since the mid-80s, imo. Perhaps they should've tried to keep the vocals buried in the mix so the lyrics don't stand out as much (as what they did with 'Rockford').

WoW, I disagree. I think it is their best song in years

Decent enough rocker I guess. So far I think The Rest of My Life is superior to the other songs.

First: has a more modern rock / alternative edge to the guitar sound.
Second: one of the riffs sounds too familiar, but I can't seem to identify it ("??? of these days" part. Stone Temple Pilots-ish). And Kinks or The Who sounding riffs
Third: Gotta love Spotify

Like the song. Sounds like a combination of "Rock 'N' Roll Tonight" from Busted, "All Strung Out" from BZCH, "Baby No More" from Cheap Trick 97 and maybe a little "Baby Loves To Rock" From ASU.

One of the very few times where I think Robin's approach to a song doesn't come out quite right. There's something about the way he sings the verses that seems off.

Not a slam but do you like harder songs?
Because it is one of their harder songs & Daxx kills on drums.
I love the way he sings

The riff & vocal riffing at the beginning is similar to living loving maid & I'm down

Songs ... it think one part sounds like a part in Stone Temple Pilots Vaseline

Spotify.
until I can get a CD in my hands, it's the next best thing. I buy a lot of CD's still. Between 3 to 10 a month. New Release Friday lunch break is usually CD shopping time.
Plus Spotify is convenient to get your music fix at work

The guitar parts sound kind of like the intro to "Yeah, Yeah" from '97.  The stops and starts are reminiscent of "Black Dog" and "Baby Loves to Rock".  I'm not super excited about anything so far except "The Rest of My Life" which I think could go down as one of their all time greats; lyrically simple but rendered bittersweet and poignant by Robin.
