According to Spin The Rural Alberta Advantage are on Fire! I just think they're boring.

Woah another hot new Canadian band! According to Spin Magazine at least. Don't get me wrong I love the Canadian indie scene...I have been to Montreal, lived in Toronto, there are a ton of good Vancouver indie bands, but I can't say I'm digging these guys. I have more of a "been there, done that" attitude with them. To me, it just sounds as though they are piggy backing off of the sounds of more popular acts like stars, Young Galaxy and the like. I'm not hearing anything new or exciting. The song "In The Summertime" tricks you into the thinking the music will build, when in reality it ends as boring and uneventful as it starts.
