I don't think that *anyone* thinks that "this stuff is uniquely
Sloan's". In fact, the band will be the first people to admit this, I
would think. However, given the fact that hardly any music these days
is truly original, I figure it's not what you use, it's what you do
with it. I think Sloan has written some fantastic songs on this album,
and rather than simply ripping off the Beatles, they've put their mark
on the material. (ie Autobiography.. there aren't many other people
who could write lyrics that fucked up and still pull it off :) ).
I've said it before and I'll say it again: There are a lot worse bands
that Sloan could be influenced by.
