wondering what the people who are making note of imitations of other artists are doing it for. i think absofacto uses a lot of aurally pleasing sounds and may have been influenced by other artists (and who hasn't), but the way he blends them together are reminiscent of other bands yet uniquely his own. it's almost genre-bending and defining at the same time - it sounds like a lot of things but isn't any of them. what it does sound like is great music. he's very talented. i love the music.
