After a couple of months „Sad“ turned out to be a happy ending in terms of approval for many listeners, go nogo embark on a new journey. Whereas its predecessor had sort of a broken beat element paired with delayed 16th notes on Eric’s guitar, „Things Ain’t Right“ is very downbeat and smoothly build around an acoustic backdrop. Strings and Rhodes make a solemn appeal to the listener and Fred Scholl’s singing is again in line with the hymnal character of „Sad“, but this time in a joyous vein. If „Things Aint Right", well then „Some Things Ain’t Too Right“, meaning „it can’t get any better“ – this simple philosophy is based on experiencing simple pleasures, like visiting friends you haven’t seen for a while. Musically the original version is a cross of Pink Floyd’s languid moments and 90s downbeat excursions from viennese figureheads like Tosca.
