I really don't think the amount of airplay for "500 Up" can even come close
to comparison of the airplay for both "the good in everyone" and "everything
you've done wrong". I mean it the attention Sloan are getting now is unreal.
Everyone is now jumping of the bandwagon for Sloan, well bandwagon is a bad
choice of words, but anyways, they are getting bigger, and this is only the
beginning. I mean, so far this year my school has played the whole "twice
removed" album before and after classes thoughout the school, and just on
friday they used "the good in everyone" on the accouncments. SLOAN ARE
GETTING BIG !!! 'nuf said.
