So good to see Quinn! I saw him in Savannah and he is fantastic live.

I typically like the genre, and love the subject, but the lyrics feel "meh" here, which sinks the song.

Also conversely I've never overly liked rap or punk, but Black Snakes and At The Time Of Writing and this cover really rock, among the many good climate songs mentioned before.
