I've listened to these guys, and I've liked what I've heard. But as a whole from what I hear people are all over the place on these guys. I know a lot people who are stark raving mad for these guys, and I know equally as many people who just hate it.

these are some thoughtful yet simple guys playing their asses off across the country. npr is streaming the new cd right now. worth a listen, but their live shows are where its at.

If you like what you've heard, why do you give a damn about how many people hate it?

Love these guys and really have yet to hear someone who doesn't like what they hear especially when they see them live.

Here's there show at the newport folk fest from this summer with some splendid renditions of I and Love and you and Kick drum Heart from the new album.

Their albums are good, but as marionc said the live shows are where you really see what they are about. Definitely you can take some good things lyrically from their albums but until you see them live you can't get their pulse. I haven't listened to the new album on NPR yet but I imagine a song like "Kick drum Heart" is most likely going to disappoint after seeing it live.
