The music isn't untread territory. “Another Night” is adorned with Springsteen-worthy sax lines. “Different Days” is driven by simple, yet punchy electric organ. “Sleepless” aimlessly ambles along with a Dylan-esque folksiness. Yes, you'll hear a harmonica in there. Gone is the cacophony of raging guitars, and in its place, something almost jammy. Especially on a song like “Pearly Gates,” where they're hammering away at any instrument they can get their hands on, they're embracing a free-wheeling style.
It's not so much a stretch, when you consider how out of control The Men's early stuff could feel. New Moon's “Saw Her Face” showed a predilection for cutting loose -- it was recorded in one long and wild take. The difference this time is that they actually recorded in a studio, not a bedroom or a barn. Tomorrow's Hits is more of a production than anything the band has done before.
The grandness of it all is what makes the record good. Again, the music isn't anything particularly interesting.
