The incredible thing about that is how finished the song already sounds. Very little changed in the arrangement, years later.

The drumming there made me cringe though. Sheesh.

It is good. But nowhere close to top 5 for me. Maybe top 25

I don't know man, I'm just really not into Betterman lately. I'll almost take Sirens over Betterman nowadays.

Betterman is a great pop rock song. Not good, Great. I almost never seek the song out, but every time I intently listen to it I’m reminded of just how great a song it truly is. It may not fall in my top 20 or 30 PJ songs, but that’s more of a testament to how many wonderful songs this band has written.

This is the correct take.
