I can see where the Carter USM comparison would come in (sharp witty lyrics, forceful beat), but I think there's a whole lot more depth to Pat's voice (when he's singing), and though I'm not musicologist enough to analyse what this might correspond to, there's a whole lot more depth in the music (that nice rising guitar bit in the middle section? Okay, I'm not a musicologist at all . . .) Carter were witty and tuneful enough, but their stuff always sounded a bit production-line, a bit plastic, a bit one-dimensional. Perhaps that was the (post-modern) point though.
