Nice!

Some of those track titles are funny. Especially the first track.

The title is clunky, but I love the album cover.

If Ya Hey has anything to do with Hey Ya, I will personally fly out to each of their douchey Manhattan lofts and punch them in the mouth individually.

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.

Hard to classify, and even if not wholly original, it still sounds very fresh.

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.

un·der·whelm (ŭn'dər-hwělm', -wělm') Pronunciation Key
tr.v. un·der·whelmed, un·der·whelm·ing, un·der·whelms
To fail to excite, stimulate, or impress

I have no problem with threads for blindfolded optimism only, but this was never marked as such. What's wrong with not enjoying something unconditionally, again...?

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

Yeah, some odd titles here, but agreed on the cover looking cool.

I'm looking forward to hearing this.

2008 me was a rule breaker.

 
I don't know how long I'd been back on Interference at that point in 2008, I think it was just a few months (maybe it wasn't and I was just being a dumbass). Before I"d left, the site was pretty strict in regards to moderation. Mods would even intervene if people were going off topic in threads for example. A big "no no" back in the day was coming into a thread that was obviously a "fan" thread and raining on the parade. I'd thought the thread was pretty obviously a "fan thread" with the title at the time, so I remember being frustrated / surprised that sort of thing wasn't being enforced when I returned. I believe the above "argument" took place because of that. Once I realized that sort of thing wasn't moderated any more, I dealt with it (by having sex with everyone's mothers).

I hope you paid for the services of Lance's Mom.


Or did your rule-breaking extend to "illegal uploading" as well?

Oh, man. I like Diane Young a lot. Very upbeat, some old school vocal melodies mixed with new school effects on the vocal. Yes.
