"Sleepy Town" is a rather odd piece of work for us but I love it and most people that have heard the album love it.
I don't really know how to describe it but in a way it's Bruce Springsteen in his more melancholic mood (anyone heard "Paradise" off "The Rising"?? Wonderful song!!). The band always say it sounds like a "road song" and by that we mean it feels like you're driving a car at dawn or dusk along some deserted highway focused only on the road after hours and hours of driving... I guess that doesn't say much but that's the way it makes me feel.
It has a drumloop through the entire song, mellow keyboard strings and very sterile vocals plus some amazingly beautiful guitarwork. It's definitely one of my favorites off the album.
