    So I'm supposed to interview one of the guys in this band for college, and found this stuff he's written for his band. I'm not really an alternative music fan, but it would help me a lot if people just listen to a couple of the songs and tell me if they like it or not, and the reasons why.

    All I can tell so far from a first hearing is:
    1. They can play in tune and record professionally
    2. I don't like his voice in particular
    3. Somewhat uninteresting harmonies except for the last song (Once) which doesn't resolve into tonic until the last note.
    4. The lyrics are OK.

    Thanks for your opinion.
    I thought the beginning of "CEO" was "sung" like rap, i.e. tuneless, and then merged into a discernable tune. Then again, rap isn't my favorite either.
