Funny that Beach House scored a 10 for their review, yet only 4th on PopMatters' year end list.

Now there's a non-overrated album, in my humble and useless opinion.

Beach freaking House.

The appeal of Frank Ocean for me is in the vocals. The guy is smooth as hell. I suppose that some backlash to the critical acclaim is to be expected, but it should not detract from the overall quality of the album.

I don't really care about critical acclaim or lack thereof once I actually listen to an album. I did give this a listen because people in here were raving about it, and that to me means something. So, in terms of its reception in B&C I deem it to be "overrated" not in terms of whatever some unknown to me reviewers had to say about it, because that's useless to me.

As usual, glad that people are digging it, glad I gave it a listen, I just didn't think it was all that.

mewithoutYou's album was really really good. Did anyone mention it this year at all? I get a Modest Mouse vibe from it, along with some post-hardcore. Very melodic too though, and the lyrics are a bit goofy. I think they like Jeff Tweedy.

Also, Burial's got another strong EP out.

Is it actually out? I'll have to buy that ASAP. We need a Burial thread.

I haven't heard a mewithoutYou album in years. They remind me of high school.

There is a lot here I'm not understanding. This is either due to me mixing up mewithoutyou or due to them no longer being the band they used to be.

Wiki says they were on tooth & nail, so unless I'm mixing up my lousy Christian hardcore bands, I think the later.

After hearing two mewithoutYou albums, I honestly had no idea they were Christian rock, even though Rhapsody labeled them that way. I have no idea what's happening there.

It's perfectly possible for Christian bands to not suck. And I'm saying this as an atheist. Hell, I've been listening to flatfoot 56 pretty much nonstop the last couple weeks, been a fan of those guys for years and they've never made their religion a secret. It's also perfectly possible for Christian bands to not write "praise Jesus with me or you're all going to hell!" in every single song. I haven't heard mewithoutyou in years, so I can't even vaguely remember why I didn't like them, but I think it had more to do with what they sound like than their cramming theology down my throat.

Hmm. Doing a search pulls up a thread that was started when this years album came out. Caleb8888 and mikal were the only ones who posted in it. I swear a search should have pulled up another thread from years ago though...

And by dreadlocks, I mean I shave my head every couple of weeks.


One of those may be true. Or maybe neither are. You wouldn't believe me anyway.
