They are certainly no U2.

Oh wait...

That'll bring down the cumulative 85 score at Metacritic just a bit.

Is it really worth giving a shit about shitfork's opinion on anything?

This album is still getting numerous plays on my car stereo. Amongst The Waves

Well, while I have yet to buy Backspacer (I plan on hitting Target this week), I do agree with the sentiment that the albums themselves have been largely middling (if mostly enjoyable) affairs this decade. They certainly aren't as interesting or adventurous as the 90's releases.

The rating may be low, but the reviewer seemed objective and relatively snark-free (especially compared to their reviews of anything Shuttlecock puts out), and seemed to feel that the band was truly capable of much better.

Does anyone have an opinion as to which of the free concert downloads are best?

Get Grand Rapids 2006. That first encore was to die for. Best show of the Avocado tour.

Philadelphia 2005 and Hartford 2008 are great as well. You can't go wrong actually with any of them.

Even gave the new Muse album a higher score.

The Fixer is quality, hoping the rest of the album is just as good when I pick up the album.

Nice one.

And I imagine wiping your ass with Stereogum, while not as immediately painful, would probably be even worse.
