That's really an oversimplification. I know Cobbler specified this forum, but the critical acclaim for VW is massive and has been since they appeared on the scene. I'm not saying it's unjustified, but I can easily see how someone could believe they don't live up to the hype, e.g. headlining Pitchfork festival, album of the year in Rolling Stone, etc.

Overrated wouldn't be the first thing to come to my mind.

"Insufferably boring" would probably be the term.

I don't disagree with that. He just specified this forum

Good call. I listened to it again today and it held up really well. Fun album. Might make my list too.

I forgot all about Blue Sky Black Death's album. Apparently I never rated it...that's going to shake things up in my top 30

Am I allowed to assign negative points to The National's album?

Well, shit...this album by No Joy is right up there as well. I am really loving the 90s revival.

I thought the album was pretty bad. And I do somewhat like the National. I don't know, maybe I need to listen to it again. But I gave it about 3 runs when it first came out and didn't have any ambition to visit it again.

Your first instincts were correct.

There's dissent and then there's just blatant trolling. Dissent is fine. Trolling is not.
