Randy Jackson: Dawgs, I really feel this debut. The DFA's got you sounding like a hip-hop jam band or something. "Capes Billowing" moved me man, with that tight electric bass and cascading piano hook. Y'all have a nice orchestral feel, dude. What do you think, Paula? Paula Abdul: I really love how you've applied live instrumentation and your love of early-'90s hip-hop and indie rock, like Tortoise and the Kids soundtrack, to your music. Simon Cowell: That's the problem, Paula. The record sounds too familiar, like they've simply tossed The Face's "100 Greatest Bands" into a blender. Lyrically, Jessie, you are mediocre and the rest of you sound painfully white. Randy: Dawg, what?
