I read so much positive stuff about japandroids, so I checked them out with much anticipation....and......meh, just didn't do it for me, unfortunately.

It took me many, many listens before I liked Celebration Rock. In fact I hated it at first. Felt like it was 2000 and I was listening to Finch. But much of it grew on me, outweighing what I still don't like.

I have not listened to either yet so I have no comment.

Also has Usain Bolt won the olympics yet?

Bolt runs at 12:55 left coast time. (10 minutes from now.) I'm watching on my phone.

That pothead swimmer dude already won the Olympics, though.

If Bolt had 15 events per Olympics, he'd have a shit load of medals too

They should have 100 meter backpedal, 200 meter skipping, etc. Even a 400 meter medley would be cool. Run backwards the first 100, skip the second, sidestep the third, and sprint to the finish.

Why does he slow down at the end? He could break that record easily

Looked like he actually slowed down the last 20 meters. No record.

Japandroids and Titus Andronicus are very similar for me. There is one song on both albums I absolutely love and have listened to a ton. A couple more on both albums I like quite a bit, but don't listen to quite as often. The rest, whatevs.

That said, Titus Andronicus were SOOOO good live. The songs I am still indifferent to on the album were phenomenal. I have a feeling Japandroids would likely be the same type of deal. Some bands just can't translate their live sound / performances over to record. I've heard that Alabama Shakes group is incredible live, to the point that the people I know who've seen them acted like their album was one of the most disappointing pieces of music they've ever experienced.
