Oh, and I did it just so I could get a quote like the above one from you!

That's one way of putting it.

I'm going to defend my listening to the album, watching the Letterman performance, and pissing in the thread: I liked the first half of the first album just fine. Thought it was a fun, if slight, listen. But when you're in the business of making trifles, there are certain people who are going to sour on you pretty quickly.

I can't say I'm underwhelmed by it though, as I wasn't expecting anything better from Vampire Weekend.

I feel better than ever about illegally downloading Contra, or at least I will whenever I get around to it.

At least Get On Your Cocks was, you know, creative.

I've just listened to Cousins. It was not inspiring.

Seeing as the last album got an 8.8 from them, not bad! I'm hoping Amazon will deliver my copy early and I'll have it tonight instead of tomorrow. At the least, if it arrived before I left for work tomorrow, I'd be happy.

Gotta agree with Pitchfork here. This album is pretty damned good.

So yeah, this will be my last post in this thread. Gave Contra a listen, thought it was a poor melding of unfinished leftovers from the first album, bad integrations of late '00s indie cliches (Giving Up The Gun is a poor man's Metric, I Think Ur A Contra is a poor man's M83, etc.), and Cousins (although it could easily fit into the first category, it's so inexplicably awful that it deserves its own). Run is the one song that will stick with me, I think. Hope it's a single, because it's fucking good. Otherwise, meh.

Considering I couldn't get past track three on the first album, this is a vast improvement. So far it's the best thing I've heard this year (I act like I've heard so much). Really, really enjoyed it.
