Cool video. Nice uptempo track, maybe not as immediate as some of the stronger songs and singles off the debut.

And a random thought, but I'll bet their lead singer gets a ton of fine tail. The bastard.

You can preorder the new album for $7.99 on Amazon right now. If you're a Prime member, you'll receive it the day of release as well, which is nice.

Kudos to them for at least not sounding typical. Doesn't make it good, though.

What in hells name were you underwhelmed by, an 83/100 average on Metacritic?

Maybe the title wasn't obvious enough, but I'm really not interested in shit comparisons to completely dissimilar bands/music. If you don't enjoy them, that's fine, but I would like to ask that you spend your time talking about something you do like in a different thread rather than derailing this with multiple posts of negativity.

There are threads that are supposed to be positive only? I missed that in the FAQ's.

Underwhelmed speaks for itself. I had never heard of them before this thread, so, their hype means nothing to me. I gave a few songs a listen, as I respect your taste in music. I did not like it. Thus, I'm less than welmed. I'm unimpressed. Whelmed is above me, and I am under it as it pertains to this band. Their rating on metacritic means nothing to me as well. I don't give a shit what a group of faceless critics have to say about music.

So.....Once again, listened to them, expected something good (you accept the word good, no, can we use that?) and did not get it, and so I was
U N D E R W H E L M E D.

Simple stuff.

I had sex with each and every one of your mothers. Peter Gabriel too.

(I should note that I don't "get" Vampire Weekend either. Though, I do enjoy the Peter Gabriel/Hot Chip cover of "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa" a lot, ironically enough.)

This is really good.

Very enjoyably first listen. Short and sweet. The production is pristine. Smooth sounds, lots of cool synth moments, nice melodies. "Horchata", "Holiday", "Run", "Cousins", and "Giving Up The Gun" are particular standouts.

I like. And, of course, musics get better with repeated listens so, yeah.

Best album of 2010 so far!

I love the original track, but I need to hear this cover.
