  4. Sounds too much like TMBG......right down to the chord progression. He needs to buy another album besides "Lincoln"!

  6. I'll grant DJ Hojo's point that this sounds a lot like TMBG, but that's one of the reasons I like it. In listening to the Thing a Week, I've discovered that Jonathan does indeed do more than just "Lincoln"-style covers. Drive and Flickr are great pieces that stand on their own.
