I feel like an idiot

Ever hear a new band, only to dismiss it for sounding like another band that you oh-so-badly do not enjoy in the slightest?

I must have been in a bad mood the day I first heard Capital Lights.  It was either that, or I only listened to "Outrage", which is the worst song on This Is An Outrage!.  (Maybe even knowing that they cover Hannah Montana in concert, which is just insulting to me).  I don't really know what it was that made me not like them.  But last weekend, my girlfriend was in town, and she knows I didn't like them (except their Christmas song that I told her about and she liked), but she had the entire album on her iPod, and she asked me to at least listen to their song "Mile Away".  So I did, and I thought, "Well, it's not terrible".  Then it got stuck in my head so I eventually bought the song on iTunes and fell in love with it.  Then I decided to listen to the rest of the album, and decided that, with the exception of "Outrage", it was a very good album.

Before: I hated Capital Lights.
Now: This Is An Outrage! is on my JfH Staff Picks of 2008.

Haha, I feel like an idiot.
