Since SATT, I've resented the single choices ( as made by the band or record company or both). They essentially want to seesay "Look this band is still making songs like EMG and DFL, and you liked those didn't you!" rather than opting for songs that might widen the band's fan base. If you never listen to the albums, you'd just assume that the band are putting out the same record time and time again. I don't believe they do, but when you see singles like "It's not war", "International Blue" and "Indian Summer", I'd forgive someone for not giving the band the benefit of the doubt. I wish the third single would be reserved for some of the more heavy or experimental tracks which showcase either the band's creative edge or musicianship rather than repeating the same message with diminishing returns.

Stand back, I have political powers!
