Heh. That's EXACTLY the way I describe it. "Best since Seventh Son of a Seventh Son."

I have to say "Wicker Man" certainly hearkens back to their glory days in the 80s. It's one of their best songs, right up there with "Flight of Icarus," "Number of the Beast," "Aces High," and "The Trooper."

No order and not necessarily accurate:

Operation Ivy
Rancid
The Clash
The Beatles
Dashboard Confessional
Pink Floyd
Flogging Molly
Green Day
Beastie Boys
Calibretto 13

Unfortunately, that's probably not really that accurate.. trying to think of bands I really like off the top of my head.. I probably forgot some... and could probably switch out some of those with others like :The Descendents, Relient K, Swingin' Utters, etc.
