Song of the day: "The Seed" by The Men

There is a common thread to the critics' take on The Men's new album--the verdict seems to be (and I agree) that it is both punky and twangy. The All Music Guide says it's "akin to Dinosaur Jr. on a serious Tom Petty kick," while Everybody Taste argues "If the Grateful Dead recorded a ramshackle punk rock version of American Beauty, it might sound something like New Moon." To me, it sounds kinda like the Replacements, and that ain't bad at all.
