I'm seriously ambivalent about Eleanor Friedberger's "My Mistakes." It's a bright, energetic song, and Friedberger sings with an appealing earnestness, and the saxophone solo at the end is sensuous and lovely. However, the music up to that point is rather reminiscent of the annoying synthetic sounds so often found in video games twenty years ago. In small quantities that's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's the sort of thing one has to be in the mood for. As for the lyrics, Friedberger seems to be telling the story of getting into a car accident while mulling over her frustrations with an ex-lover, but it doesn't really make much sense and it's hard to tell what exactly is going on. During the verses, the words seem to spill from her mouth in a jumbled torrent. What does "tube top and shorts with thighs cut, hold me down" mean, exactly? How about "he's ignoring me like it's 2001"?

It's not a bad song, and its better moments have me thoroughly convinced of Friedberger's potential, but it has too many rough edges and irritating qualities to be as enjoyable as it might otherwise have been.

This song is really just kind of blah. The vocals seem forced, and it also sounds like the vocalist is really just talking over the guitarist while he/she is trying to play. It isnt very smooth, doesnt really flow, and is kind of just boring. It's not horrible or unlistenable, but i cant imagine going out of my way to listen to this again, and i could easily see myself kind of simply wandering away. Not much here at all.
