Kalhoun is a more straight-forward album than just about any of its predecessors. There's no overarching theme and little experimentation. Honestly, it's just good old alt-rock that's pretty simple compared to what's come before. I love "If You Want To" and I think it's probably one of the best love songs I know of. The acoustic opener "Big, Warm, Sweet Interior Glowing" is awesome too. I think I spin this one less than the others but there's no specific reason that I can pinpoint other than it's not really "groundbreaking" or anything - simply pleasant.

Useless Fact: The Lost Dogs covered "If You Want To."
