I actually only have this for “Don’t Be a Girl,” which has such a fascinating dark leviathan sound about it. I’m afraid most of the rest of the album sounds (to me) like variations of “Until She Comes” and “Don’t Be a Girl,” none with the latter’s strength and depth. “Tearing Down” nearly succeeds at being engaging, but I think that’s the catchiness of the syncopation talking.
