Very excited about it. I have avoided the new songs so that I can hear the full thing tomorrow.

I will still go to war over the greatness of Modern Vampires...

I pre-ordered the new album, so it should be arriving in the mail sometime in the next few days . But yes, will definitely stream the full thing tomorrow, too. I've heard a couple songs off it thus far.

I will listen to it and hope for the best, but they are such an overrated band. Maybe the single most overrated band of the last 12 or so years.

Yes. And that's the trouble I'm having.

Man I'm with you on this. They are painfully average to my ears. And none of the new songs, which are played ad nauseam on Sirius XMU, are doing anything to change that for me.

Like, Contra is a good album with a few great, catchy songs, and I liked a couple of songs on that last album, but absolutely nothing they have done remotely justifies their standing. It's all built on introducing white indie kids to non-white 'world' music and then employing scarcity and mystery as marketing strategies in the years since.

I don't think anyone rated them in the first place outside of extremely casual music listeners who claim that guitar rock is dead.

Why would casual music listeners who claim guitar rock is dead be into a guitar rock band? I'm confused by this sentence.

People who think guitar rock is dead avoid Greta Van Fleet like the plague.

they're the ones who (wrongly) complain that there is no guitar in modern music, and so when something comes along in the mainstream with identifiable guitar, they love it.

Ahhh I see what you mean. So it's people who claim guitar music is dead but also really don't want guitar music to be dead.

Greta Van Fleet are utter shithouse, by the way, so I agree with everyone on that front.
