Agree with the sentiment. Born & Razed, Broken Arrow and The End of the Romance were all great discs and then he just really mellowed off his sound. Saw him live a year ago and he barely played any of the old stuff and what he did was at a much slower tempo. No doubt he has talent though.
He's a douchebag IRL. He use to always come back to a friend's place after playing gigs in Starkville and dude was full of himself. He'd be smoking out and just start talking himself up to the point where it;s like STFU and chill. But hey, the 17-19 year old sorority girls loved him. Guess I gotta give him props for that.
