Show Me sometimes shows its influences a little too plainly. Not that this is bad, but playing the "Name the influence" game can take away some of the enjoyment. "One Day in Your Life," for example, is a good song, patterned after Midnight Oil. The same goes for "Walk in Line." That doesn't mean that they aren't enjoyable to listen to. It's like the band is trying to "show" you where they're coming from. It's not bad, but a little more of themselves would have been better. Call this one transitional, but entertaining, none the less.
