WTF?? I put "Sometime Around Midnight" on repeat and listened to it 5 times in a row!! The vilolins and the depth of the lyrics get better and better with each listen. You must be tone-deaf.

Everything I listened to by them shows how versatile they are. I have yet to be disappointed by them. Yeah, pitchfork.

That's cool broceratops, a few people have mentioned that they find the record to be shallow and unrewarding. We're not attacking your personal opinion or anything.

I'm not really a Pitchfork fan, usually make up my own mind about music.

I just think "versatile" is being mistaken for "copycat" for this album. They may as well have written "This is our U2 song, This is our Interpol song, This is our Rockabilly bar band song" next to the song titles on the back of the CD case.

Point taken, but does U2 or Interpol have an violints in their band? Nowadays, many bands are "copying" from U2. Their music is influencing so many bands. So, does that mean any band that does sound like U2 should be "thrown in the trash?" Everybody is "borrowing" the Edge's unique riffs. I say, go for it, let the music scene sound like that than the Jonas Brothers. They still have their own style apart from U2 or Interpol. But I think Kings of Leon is more like U2 than this band. I do see the Interpol connection, though. But this band speaks to me more with their humbleness and vulernability like no other band I know.

P.S. Interpol sounds like Joy Division that doesn't keep me from listening to them and that shouldn't keep you from listening to them, either.

Okay, so I decide to do a little more searching about The Airborne Toxic Event, and here they go and cover Goodbye Horses by Q Lazzarus.

AWESOME!

I love having that song queued up on my stereo just to freak people out.

no, it's the reason i checked them out back when they came out. but in the end, it just made me want to listen to joy division instead.

I saw them live earlier this year at an Amnesty Benefit for the Neda project. They are really interesting live. I'm not a huge fan of the album; my preference is more with the way that they sound on "Sometime around midnight". But, watching them live was definitely a treat.
