Lets throw down this review for Mr Aaron at the KMA,
Sloan I knew were out there of course (early 90s)but when I first heard Good In Everyone I had to get the whole damn album from where this song originated!(One Chord To Another)
Sloan dudes Jay Ferguson,Andrew Scott,Chris Ferguson and Patrick Pentland nail The Good In Everyone from start to finish in a cool 2 minutes 18 seconds!
You have to love the reckless abandon as the intro sounds like all the Sloan dudes are stuffed all together in there Volkswagon and off the cliff it goes….
As quick as that happens the song is back on track and it becomes apparent real quick that Pentland is the rock guy in Sloan and he crafts vocally a real cool lyric that slides into a real cool verse!
Also must be mentioned is Pentlands guitar solo,dude breaks out some wah pedal and slips and slides and shifts right back into the chorus!
Before you know it…Song is over and I got my ass kicked in under 2 and a half minutes!
Two vids of Good In Everyone. Top one(live) is recently and the bottom one is from 1996
Kudos to Sloans choice of swag in the original video!( Bonus points awarded to Pentland for the cool hat!)
Love the Rock vibe of the live vid as well! Man that drummer Andrew Scott plays like a crazed lunatic behind the kit! Kinda like a Canadian Keith Moon! Props to the extra memeber(snazzy captains hat)dude slicing and dicing the tambourine=Street Cred!
Happy Canada Day Folks!
