Okay, so I'm a huge fan of Dirk Frazel, my drummer showed them to me, and I fell in love instantly. Partially because they were my first Emo band, but ya know. Randy's Bacon is a weird one, and that's what great about it. If you've met the guys in Dirk Frazel, you'll know they are a lot like Randy's Bacon: weird, but in a good way. Anyway, the downsides to this would be the sound mixing in the vocals. You could argue that it was on purpose, and it could have been, but still it's a little distracting when you're listening to the crazy guitar parts and realize suddenly that Garrett is crying out some lyrics in the background. Their lyric style is very similar live, as it is to their recorded lyric style. When they played live, many times Garrett didn't even try to aim at the Mic's. But anyway, even for being such a huge fan of Dirk Frazel, the downsides of the songs can be a little tiresome. Check them out sometime though, and don't you ever miss one of their shows.
