"Windows" has a jaunty, feel-good melody and a devil-may-care lyric. Other cuts range from the slow-burn tempo of "I Was Wrong" to "My Moonshine," which incorporates a bit of Creedence Clearwater Revival twang guitar into the mix. The band closes things out with "It Pains Me," a sparse acoustic blues number with a heartbreakingly aching vocal. Wonderful stuff.
