    LOVE Braids. Every album is different, and every one is wonderful. There's so few bands who are willing to be as daring as Braids, and much less who are and also pull it off so effectively every time!

    Miniskirt. Confrontational lyrics that are sad 'cos they're true. I'd love Britney Spears or Katy Perry singing this and meaning it, imagine that how it would be so socking and empowering, rather than the piss poor songs they perform. As it is it's up to Braids to write a song like Miniskirt and unfortunately I doubt it'll be played on MTV or daytime radio.

    Sore Eyes is such a great song! I'm really enjoying this band's evolution so far!
