If only it were August 2006, when Kinfolk was originally scheduled for release, all this would be true. But even though Universal sat on the disc for a year, and even with lyrics that are standard midwest/southern stuff (boasting about having the resources to shop at the mall, etc.), the stripped-down beats are infectious from top to bottom, which is no mean feat for an hour-long work. It may lack the crossover potential of "Grillz" or St. Elsewhere, but one song borrows the vocal hook from Genesis' "That's All," so there's that.
