I saw Built to Spill in concert for the first time last month. Needless to say, it was one of the best concerts I've ever been to. What truly stuck me about Dug was his stage presence or lakc thereof. He would go through song after flawless song, the crowd would go nuts, and then he would nervously thank them as if he never saw their reaction coming. More than any other band, Built to Spill let their music speak for itself. Keep it Like a Secret is the brilliant climax of their damn near perfect three album run that started with there's nothing wrong with love. Honest lyrics, perfect pop melodies, blazing guitar solos, theyre all here. Everysong is a highlight and a potential single. Still, the glue that holds this together is the honesty and emotion of Dug. He once said that he resents being called a guitar hero. He said in an interview that there are probably ten-thousand people in this country that can play better than him. Even if he's too shy to admit it, we know it's true and if its not because of his technical prowess (which still is pretty impressive) than its the fact that he's one of the most inventive minds to ever pick up the instrument.
