I think the Beatles were extremely overrated in 1964. However, once
they began to experiment with new styles and develop as a band, they
did some very creative work. And you can't deny their influence on
almost every genre of "pop" music since.

So Sloan is more original than the Beatles?? :)
Why aren't they a mirror? Four diverse, talented musicians in a
band which displays their separate influences. Compare Underwhelmed
thematically to I wanna Hold your Hand. (Sloan's is much better
lyrically, but both bands made their initial break on similar love
songs) Progression into different style with each album rather than
self repetition. All we need now is 10000 teenage girls screaming
at the airport.
They're at least a pocket mirror, maybe with a bit of rouge.
PS but then, I'm a chemist, not a music historian, so what do I know.
