I find the tempo to be way too slow during the verses.  When yMusic joins in on the refrains, it's not as strikingly slow/forced.

It's kind of funny because if you take a listen to the tempo of the song during the Temple U performance back in May (here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDBanOvrqHo) it actually matches up well with the studio track.

When you listen to the song at Bonnaroo, kind of like a number of the songs during that gig, it's faster.
A one-hit wonder with no hits...

Hey, that's Oh-Ned-Er!

That video is a pretty great video of the back of my head :)

I'm really growing to love the songs from this album. Don't get me wrong, I do like the studio versions, but there's just something so powerful about the ymusic band during live performances that doesn't completely translate when recorded.
