    It's not bad, but I can't say I'm in love with it. Sounds like another song that belonged on The Black Market, which I also wasn't crazy about. The steady decline is getting really noticeable lately, and it kills me because I really want it to be good, but I'll reserve that judgment until they release the rest of the album.
    Admittedly, I'm kind of a Rise Against fanboy and I still have to agree. The song wasn't bad, it just wasn't anything special. Nothing really stands out other than a moderately catchy chorus melody. Even the lyrics (which I normally give extremely high praise for) were kind of boring and felt forced. I'm hopeful that the rest of the album is a bit better.
    The first single from them is usually the "safest", so i expect more. The Black Market was the same, lead single was catchy but safe, but there were some real gems on the album still.
