mates of state - "think long" (from the bring it back lp, album available march 21; visit the band's official website here.)

on "think long," mates of state sound like a pre-teen cheerleading competition, the fall w/ electric pianos, and playground bullies--little then has changed for their debut on barsuk. they remain too much of a good thing; i wonder if i picked the opening track b/c i like it best or b/c exhaustion set in as the album progressed. they're a wee bit precocious--think the kids from 'zoom' all grown up--and close to being too clever for their own good--witness the opening chords from "don't stop believin'" burbling under the song's coda--but at their best, as heard here, they're finger-snappin' catchy and you'd want them playing at your next sleepover. you'll either love it or think it sounds like kidz bop. in which case, you might still love it.

Generic Viagra is an oral treatment drug that has been developed to combat erectile dysfunction. The fundamental ingredient within the product is sildenafil, which essentially serves to work within the body, through the improvement of the blood supply into the penis, thus along for firmer, longer lasting erections.

Generic Cialis functions by inhibiting the action of an enzyme, known as PDE5. Generic Levitra helps increase the flow of blood to the penis, so it may help men with ED get and keep an erection that lasts long enough to have successful sex.

Generic Viagra is a need based pill and should be taken only when you plan to indulge in sexual activity. Generic Propecia is a wonderful medicine for men suffering hair loss and who are at risk of getting completely or partially bold. Propecia can also help you at the beginning stages of some prostatic problems. Viagra improves erections for most men no matter how long they have had erectile dysfunction, taken approximately 30 minutes before your plan of sexual activity and works on stimulation for around 4 hours.
